I wrote a Catalyst How To for Hostgator shared hosting a while ago,
which may be of some help:
I did this when I was first learning Catalyst, so be sure to check out
the second post, which covers a couple of mistakes that I made.
You need to be able to create a .htaccess file, and may need some
modules installing as root. While the installation worked, it was a
little slow. I later moved it to a VPS solution, as this gave me much
more freedom and better performance.
