Magento installation issue

Hi all,

When i try to install magento in my server i got a version error, It is

Whoops, it looks like you have an invalid PHP version.

Magento supports PHP 5.2.0 or newer. Find out how to install Magento using PHP-CGI as a work-around.

My php version is 5.2.2. I checked it and found that if i upload the php5-cgi in to the cgi-bin folder and then chage the .htaccess files by adding the two lines as below,that is

Action php5-cgi /cgi-bin/php5-cgi
AddHandler php5-cgi .php

I have done these changes also. But still it shows the error

I think there is some problem with the path of the /cgi-bin directory and php5-cgi.php file.

where i want to upload the php5-cgi file.

Please anybody give me a suggestion.
