[Koha] attempting to install Koha at Bluehost.com

Dear fellow list members,
  In am interested in installing Koha onto a web hosting account and not on a home computer.  I decided to try Bluehost because I saw that they allowed editing the php.ini file and so figured that they might be my best shot at getting Koha installed on subscription account that I could afford.  Other than wondering if anyone else has been successful in doing so with any web site hosting companies I request feedback on the following.
  After finding out that that Bluehost (www.bluehost.com) uses Fedora I emailed the Bluehost tech support the Install file and asked them to look it over and tell me if I could install it in my web hosting account as part of a web site.  (Though the Install instructions were dated from 2005 I was hoping that they would be sufficient).  Bellow is the the response email I recieved from the Bluehost tech support staff.
  First though, here are my questions in relation to their response:
  A) are there substitute Perl modules that I can install because Bluehost says that they can only install modules when there is a "stable version" of them?  E.g.:
    1)Sendmail v0.79 <-- Bluehost says that it is not in a stable release and so they won't install it.  What can I do about this?
    2)Net::Z3950 v0.51 <-- I looked this one up and it is outdated by a replacement.  Since this was written in 2005 then perhaps I can use the replacement instead?  What can I do about this.
  B) In short: would someone please give me a list of what I should ask the web hosting company (in this case Bluehost) to install?
  in gratitude,
  Truth C.
