I'm having trouble getting ZMySQLDA to install. Here's what I did:

(1) Installed MySQL-python-1.2.2 using the same python my Zope instance is using
(2) Dropped ZMySQLDA into my Instance/Products/ directory
(3) Restarted Zope, and here's the message I'm now getting:

2007-03-08T15:03:44 ERROR Zope Couldn't install ZMySQLDA
