Thank you for the reply.  However, unfortunately the documentation that 
you refer to -- while instructive in respect to DBI usage -- does not 
answer my question, which is simply:

Must I install MySQL on a client workstation/PC in order to run perl/DBI 
scripts that query a local MySQL server?

I know I do need to install DBI, DBD:MySQL, however, I'm not sure what, 
if anything else I need to install on the client?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
