You probably use MySQL 4.1 or newer?
Then you should follow the instructions noted on this site:
The reason why you get this error is that MySQL changed the authentication
protocol as of version 4.1.1. Concretely, they use a new password hashing
mechanism, now passwords are 41 bytes long instead of 16 bytes...
The Squeak MySQL driver uses apparently still the old authentication
protocol used in MySQL 3.23 or 4.0.
This is the same problem you get when using the standard mysql extension of
PHP instead of the new one, called mysqli (mysql improved).
