There are instructions in the source code, and from the ReadMe on the 
Windows area of CRAN:

  RMySQL is available at http://stat.bell-labs.com/RS-DBI/download,
  provided by its maintainer, David A. James.

One caveat: binary versions of RMySQL have proved sensitive to the exact 
version of MySQL installed, so it is better to build from the sources on 
your own machine (if you can).
