I'm thankful for any help on installing RMySQL on Windows XP for R 1.9.1

The thread
already tried to discuss the matter. It concludes that Windows Sources for Packages are alike the Linux ones.

So I extracted the files from the RMySQL_*.tar.gz from
and stuffed them into a zip-file which was willingly taken by the install routine of my RGui. It said the well known "updating HTML
package descriptions" but when using library(RMySQL) the error "Error in testRversion(descfields) : This package has not been
installed properly. See the Note in ?library". Obviously the note wasn't very helpful and so I ask you for any help.
