JDBC Connection to MySQL in OOo

I'm having a heck of a time hooking OpenOffice Org to MySQL.

I have the 1.4.2 JRE installed and enabled in OOo.
I have downloaded the latest JDBC driver for MySQL.
I have added the Driver Directories to my Classpath Varaible.
I have downloaded the latest snapshot of OpenOffice Org, 1.9.60.

No matter what I try, I get the "The JBDC Driver Could Not Be Loaded"
error dialog when I test the connection class.

Could I be completely missing a step?

Any suggestions on what I need to tweak?

Thanks,

The Sunburned Surveyor

Landon,
I'm just curious, but what is "OpenOffice Org" ? My first thought was that it was a competitor to MS Office, but I don't see how that would relate to connecting to a database.

OpenOffice Org is an open source alternative to Microsoft Office developed by Sun Microsystems.

It can be used to connect to databases.

Interesting!

Does Open Office have it's own classpath? Maybe it is overwriting the operating system one?
