The best way would be to find a pre-made package for your particular flavor of Linux (rpm, apt-get, etc). Failing that, you can always use CPAN: perl -MCPAN -e "install DBI" perl -MCPAN -e "install DBD::mysql" Note that it's "DBD::mysql", not "DBI::mysql". -- Ernest MacDougal Campbell III, MCP+I, MCSE <dougal at gunters.org> http://dougal.gunters.org/ http://spam.gunters.org/ Web Design & Development: http://www.mentalcollective.com/ This message is guaranteed to be 100% eror frea!
