MySQLdb - possible without install?

I'm no expert with this at all... could I get some pointers? I'm
assuming that you're saying that I need to compile MySQLdb with the
MySQL and Python versions that my provider uses. This will result in
the creation of a MySQLdb directory in the site-packages directory of
Python. Does it produce anything else?
After this is created, do I just copy that directory (MySQLdb) to a
MySQLdb directory on the provider side (in this case.. within
cgi-bin)? And finally, what line can I put within my scripts to pull
this information in? (ie.: import ??)
How can this keep track of what directory MySQL and Python are in? (or
are there configuration files that I can change - AFTER the compile?)
Thanks for your help,
