Might sound abvious but do you have mySQL installed?

Hi Sam,

Yes I have 4.0.16 server rpm and client rpm installed, the server is
running, I can run mysql and get a mysql> prompt and I have set a
user=root password.

I *think* the mysql install is ok but when I do an IC makecat it
complains about perl module DBD::mysql
