I haven't gone too far in testing it, but there is an ODBC driver available for mysql and that can be hooked to the BDE and distributed that way.

I want to uses MYSql without the BDE. I have the the zeos library components. I just need to know what is required to run MySQL databases on another computer that the program is deployed to. Is MySQLLib.DLL all that is needed, or do I need to send a client along with it.

 Yes, I think you only need to copy "libmysql.dll" to "Windows/System". The application compiled executable file includes the ZeosDB engine, so no need to copy other files.
