i have no direct experience with DBI and mysql, but i'm using quite
extensively DBI with DB2 and ODBC.
did you test your installation? how did you get it? was it a .deb or just a
if it was a tarball, 99% you have to compile and install it before you can
use it.
and it's good to test it before going on developing.
