I think that COM is a Windows only thing. I have never heard of it existing
in the Linux world.
Perhaps the Mono people have emulated DCOM (Distributed COM)?, and will
answer here.
Otherwise, you are out of luck as far as running on Linux is concerned.

If you want to run this on Windows, you can access MySQL using adodbapi,
which does the necessary COM for you.
See http://adodbapi.sourceforge.net
The MySQL server can be on either a Linux or Windows machine. My test server
runs on Ubuntu Linux.
