try change the connectionstring to something like:

sConnectionString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};SERVER=serverName;DATABASE=schemaName;USER=userName;PASSWORD=password"            

You may download this driver from mysql site at:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/3.51.html

only for me if i follow in detail your given sample from
http://www.carlprothman.net/Default.aspx?tabid=90#ODBCDriverForMySQL
including all the options, guess that was the problem.

One more thing, will this work with the latest mysql version 5 as well ?
