It shouldn't be too bad. The app downloads the packages then installs them.
If the install fails as you've noted, you can remove the perl rpm, then
install ximian from local source (/var/cache/redcarpet/packages), including
the ximian perl package. There is an option in redcarpet to select local
packages, just highlight the packages in the gui and install.
