Ok, so it looks like you are using Apache 2 and I'll bet that tutorial hasn't been updated for Apache 2 yet.

I know the CGI101 tutorial. I did some work on the second edition of the book that is based on the tutorial. You'll learn good habits from following that site.
However. The problems that you are currently having are nothing to do with Perl or CGI. It's purely an Apache configuration problem. This isn't really the best place to ask questions about Apache configuration. There may be people here who can help you, but you'd be far better off looking for somewhere where Apache experts gather.
I know a bit about Apache configuration, but all of my knowledge is Unix/Linux based. I can't really be much help to you as you seem to be using Windows and the directory structure is completely different on Windows.
My advice would be to install Linux on the computer which you want to use to learn CGI programming. The vast majority of web sites are hosted on servers running Unix or Linux and you would learn far more useful skills if you used what most other people do. I understand that it's completely possible to get the right environment working on Windows, but I've never had to do it.
