Please see this link:

I have installed MYSQL Connector/ODBC, but still there is no option of "Data Sources (ODBC)" in my
start->setting->control panel.

Please tell me how can i bring this option?

if the mysql server is installed on the same machine use localhost as the server url ... have u created the database on mysql server ..... ur connection s tring would be
hostname:port:sid. Then u have a user name and password fill the form based on this entry and test the connection
