Hi - I've just downloaded mysqldb for 3.2. After running the install I
find that I can't import mysqldb. When I looked in the directory
mysqldb was installed into the only modules visible are and So i tried importing
CompatMySqlDB and that works fine ...

>>> import CompatMysqldb
>>> import Mysqldb
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named Mysqldb

...trouble is I read in this group that I'm not meant to be using
CompatMysqldb so what am I doing/have done wrong ?

I got mysqldb as a binary from ...

... if anyone can throw some light on this I'd be grateful.
