Please do use an informative subject line.

The comment was that he was using code compiled against MySQL 4.0.x on
MySQL 3.2.x, and had not read the readmes.

A further comment is that you are asked *not* to report problems with 
pre-compiled packages on R-help, but to re-compile them yourself.
He had ignored that, and I suspect you have too.
