Perl and MySQL

I want to use MySQL with Perl but I have a problem.
I downloaded a module mysql.pm and tried to use it like that:

    use DBI;
    ...
    ...

    $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password);

    ...

but I got an error message "Can't find DBI" or something like that.
The solution is probably very simple, but I give 300 points to someone who will explain me what to do from A to Z. And please, I am not a Perl guru, explain clearly.

Thanks

First, you have to download and install DBI from http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/modules/by-module/DBI/DBI-1.02.tar.gz

Once you've done that, install it, and then get http://www.tcx.se/Contrib/Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2010.tar.gz

Install that, and you should be on your way.
