By "asks me a lot of questions", are you referring to the standard questions that are asked to set up CPAN for the first time? If so, then you should only have to do them once through and once CPAN is setup for that user, it shouldn't ask again.

If it is the Carp module, I am not sure right now and would have to look.

So, you are using a live distribution of Knoppix to run Linux. Well then, you are going to have to go through the trouble of the setup every single time.

My suggestion is, if you are worried about installing Linux with Windows, then try using something like VirtualBox ( a free VM Ware like software package) to install Linux and use it as others do, without the live distro environment.
