Can't install DBD for Perl DBI

Below is a copy of the file: DBD-mysql.ppd, and also of the README.
When I try to execute the file I get:

Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 88D5-8262

C:\Documents\Temp\x>ppm install DBD-mysql.ppd
ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform

I suspect the problem is that I am using Perl v 5.10 but I can’t seem to find anything for that version of Perl.

I am using:
Perl: This is perl, v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
MySQL: Server version: 5.1.31-community MySQL Community Server (GPL)
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

Is there something that I can use?

PS: I tried to contact patg directly, but the mail was returned as undeliverable.

To install this ActiveState PPM package, run the following command
in the current directory:

ppm install DBD-mysql.ppd
