Error using DBI with Perl

I installed the DBI package so that I could write Ruby scripts that access MySQL databases. When I attempt to run a test script, I get the following error:

/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:344:in `load_driver': Could not load driver (no such file to load -- mysql) (DBI::InterfaceError)
from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:227:in `_get_full_driver'
from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:213:in `connect'
from /root/bin/simple.rb:6

I used the instructions at this link:

Can anyone help me figure out what the problem is?
