[Haskell-beginners] Installing HDBC

I entered the command you gave me: cabal install HDBC-sqlite3
It returned the following error:
    Resolving dependencies...
    Configuring HDBC-sqlite3-
    cabal: Missing dependency on a foreign library:
    * Missing C library: sqlite3

I then went to the link you provided: 
I extracted the tar file, HDBC-sqlite3-, and tried to un-tar it 
but get the following message:
    "Error reading header after processing 0 entries"

I'd appreciate any help...
