Had the same problem installing RoR and using Rails 2.3.2 and mysql 2.8.1.
There is a blog ( on the subject. In Windows install "gem install mysql" and ignore the doc error messages. From the blog you do

1. download older MySQL client library, for example one from InstantRails:
2. copy the downloaded file to C:\Ruby\bin (or wherever you installed Ruby)
3. restart MySQL server (or restart Windows)
