I've seen that problem when either (a) I didn't have the table defined
before running the generate scripts, or (b) I had something wrong in my
database.yml file that prevented rails from connecting to my database.

I'm running MySQL 4.x under WindowsXP with the following in my

  adapter: mysql
  database: myproject_development
  username: ****
  password: ****
  socket: /tmp/mysql.sock

Maybe that format of socket will work for you?
