Let me add that http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/1.8/ReadMe 
tells us:

"Although the packages
   RMySQL, ROracle, and snow
pass make check, it seems to be dangerous to distribute them:
I do not have the software available these packages depend on.
RMySQL is available at http://stat.bell-labs.com/RS-DBI/download,
provided by its maintainer, David A. James."
