I think that MM.MySQL used to be packaged as a tar file, but not is distributed
as a JAR. Use the newer one, you'll be better off. And do as the filename
indicates: un-jar it. You'll end up with a directory that contains the
actual driver file plus a bunch of other stuff like the source code.
Put the driver JAR file (mm.mysql-2.0.10) in your CLASSPATH. If you're
using it with Tomcat, put it in the appropriate directory, depending on
whether you want your applications, Tomcat, or both to be able to access
