I apologize for posting so much.
I decided to switch to Linux for our Bugzilla server.  I'm still having 

Here are my specs.  These are the out-of-the-box installations built into Red 
Hat 9...
MySQL  v3.23.54
Perl   v5.8.0
Apache v2.0.40

Perl Modules:
AppConfig (v1.56)
CGI (v3.07)
Data::Dumper (v2.12)
Date::Format (v2.22)
DBI (v1.48)
DBD::mysql (v2.1021)
File::Spec (v0.83)
File::Temp (v0.13
Template (v2.14)
Text::Wrap (v2001.0929)

I encountered an error when I installed AppConfig.  It failed when trying to do 
the database test.  As a result, the make install didn't work.  So, I re-ran it 
without doing the database test in the middle, and the make install worked just 
Finally, I get to the point where I change localconfig and then run 
checksetup.pl.  It fails when trying to connect to the database.
I was told in a previous reply that on Linux, the DBI was compiled against the 
wrong version of MySQL.
My problem: I'm extremely new to Linux, and I don't know how to recompile DBI 
against a different version of MySQL.  All I did was issue the commands 
provided in the instructions.
I apologize for my ignorance.  I'm trying to learn more, but I need some help.
Thank you.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Steps described above.
Actual Results:  
Checksetup.pl fails on database connection phase.

Expected Results:  
Connected to the database like a good little Perl script.
