I am following the Agile Rails dev book and I like the command line
format used to create example apps in the book. However, I am stuck on
one point. How do I run mysql commands from the Rails prompt. I have a
Win Xp sys. I can start rails from the command prompt. But if I type
"mysql", I get an error saying it is not recognized as an internal or
external command.

MySQL 5.0.51 is installed on my system and I can run it using a GUI
but not from the command prompt. Any ideas how to get across this
hurdle? TIA.
