Best configuration rails3+mysql on windows?

Hi, 2 years ago I carried out a little project with Rails2+Postgresql on
Windows Vista, and I had a good impression of Rails… now I have
upgrated the framework to:

Ruby 1.9.2+gem 1.7.1+rails 3.0.5, I use mySQL 5.1 as
database (still in Windows Vista)…

and I have a lot of problems with the adapter, the connection…
after imprecations I disinstalled it all!!!

Which is the best practice, what is a valid configuration (with which
version of Mysql)?
