The JDBC API is included with J2SE, so if you have 'java' on your computer, you have JDBC already.
If you mean the MySQL drivers, I assume you've got them from gjt.org or equivalent already. Get the binary, unzip it, make sure mm.mysql-2.0.4-bin.jar (or whatever the version is) is added to your classpath.
(Note: If you are using it in Tomcat or another Application server rather in an 'application', you will need to put the jar file somewhere else. The classpath won't be enough)
Does this settle you problems?
