[Haskell-cafe] MySQL and Haskell on Windows

some time ago I've had similar problems making MySQL work on Windows, 
and I wrote a post to haskell-cafe how I finally fixed them [1]. Maybe 
it helps you to solve your problems. I'm still getting linker errors 
when using hsql-mysql [2], so if you're going to use it and run into the 
same errors, but are able to fix them -- please let me know!

Best wishes,
