Do an 'apt-cache search' for the module you're looking for.
Quite often the module you're looking for is already a
Debian/Ubuntu package; in your case, the package is

libnet-ldap-perl - A Client interface to LDAP servers

So you can just apt-get install it like any other package.

If it's not a Debian package, you need to go through a bit
more work (go to, for starters), but we'll cross
that bridge when we come to it. :-)
