win2000 db module

I run win2000 IIS5 with mysql, php, active state perl etc....Does anyone know how to get/install the dbi.pm module?

I got this message when running links sql setup on my own local computer (for testing purposes).:

Checking for required modules:
CGI.pm ... version 2.56 ok!
DBI.pm not found! You can find this at: http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules
Links.pm ... ok!

Aborting.. please install the required modules and rerun setup.cgi

Go to the site linked in the report (http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules OR http://www.cpan.org) and download the DBI.pm module.

Then install the module in your Links directory under the admin directory.

Best way is to use ppm tool that ActiveState distributes. It lets you download and install pre-compiled binaries of common modules directly from ActiveState. You should just be able to type:

ppm install DBI

from command prompt, and then for DBD::mysql type

ppm install DBD-mysql
