	Hello Monty,

	I actually was able to locate a cygnus-compiled
	perl5.005_03 binary, but am finding it impossible
	to successfully build a version of the DBI module
	using that partcular distribution. ( I've sent
	the specific errors to the DBI users list, hopefully
	someone else has been able to get beyond those
	compilation errors using that Cygnus distribution.)
	Once I get beyond that obstacle, it should be relatively
	simple to build the msql-mysql-modules into the
	resulting perl5 binary.
