I have another problem. It seems that I manage to solve a problem and run 
into another

The problem is that now I can't install MySQLdb (MySQL database module for 
Python 2.3.4)

I try to ./configure and it prints a lot of crap and then says mysql ended 
on exit 1

What can I do??????????

Please help me I'm about to throw my machine over the windows (and I live on 
the 6th)

Thanks in advanced
