[Seaside] Accessing PostgresSQL or MySQL with Squeak

I'm quite new in Smalltalk and Squeak (a few days only) though I've been
doing Java and Ruby for some time now. One of the things I wanted to do
is to try to access to a relational DB through Squeak, either
PostgresSQL or MySQL. I've tried the following:

1. Jim Maynard's Squeak-PosgresSQL client -- can't seem to connect
2. Yanni Chiu's PostgreSQL Client for Squeak -- downloaded it but not
sure how to use it
3. MySQL driver at http://squeak.reider.net/mysql/ -- throws an error
requesting me to change my MySQL client (I'm using MySQL Server 4.1 though)

Anyone from this list can help? I'm planning to write a comprehensive
tutorial on how to create a simple web application using Seaside and
Squeak, and if possible a relational database. I found that there is
really a lack of such a tutorial for someone who is not from a
Smalltalk/Squeak background and I would like to contribute such a
tutorial. However I'm stuck myself on the relational database part,
would appreciate help here. Thanks!
