CGI Scripts for Mysite website?

Hi everyone. I'd like to thank you in advance if you give me any information about my following question. I own webspace from Verizon. I don't use the SiteBuilder, but instead I make my webpages from CSS, HTML, Javascript, ect. and use FTP to transfer the files onto my webspace. I have read that Verizon lets users incorporate pre-made CGI scripts into their page, so I thought I'd give it a try. I have been trying to use the "Guestbook" script, following exactly what they say to do to install it. But once I have installed everything into a page and FTP it to my webspace, it gives me a 404 Error, saying it can't find "../guestbook.exe" (after submiting my comment). Can anyone help me with this problem? I followed these directions exactly:

Please help me. Thank you.

This is the code on my site using the site builder.
