I am having problems loading RMySQL.

I am using MySQL 5.0,  R version 2.5.1, and RMySQL with Windows XP.
When I try to load rMySQL I get the following error:

 > require(RMySQL)
Loading required package: RMySQL
Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
    unable to load shared library 
  LoadLibrary failure:  Invalid access to memory location.

I did not get any errors while installing MySQL or RMySQL. It seems that 
there are other people with similar problems, although I could not find 
any hint on how to try to solve the problem.
Any help, hint or advice would be greatly appreciated.
