Connecting to a Mysql database using Active Python (Windows Vista)

P: 67
Alright I'm just getting into Python for the first time so what do I need to do to be able to setup a connection string and start using a database in python.
I'm new to this so specifics would be apprecieated. What module do I need to install and where can I find it? Once I have the module, how do I go about installing it? Thanks for your help!

Alright after dong some more research I found out that Active Python 2.6 does not have support for mysqldb, so what I had to do was download and install active python 2.5 and then download MySQL-python-1.2.2.win32-py2.5.exe and now it works great! Thanks for the reply and anyone else that was looking for a solution for me.
