Netbeans classpath problem

I'm developing a servlet application with Netbeans 3.2.2. The servlet is accessing a mysql database.
My problem is, whenever I execute the application I get an SQLException telling me there is no suitable driver for the database.
My code is fine because I've used it outside netbeans to access the same database with the mysql driver jar included in the system classpath.
I assume that netbeans can't find the mysql driver jar file. I've mounted it as a filesystem in netbeans which I assumed was all I needed to do. I've also put it in the following places without joy:
system classpath (Netbeans ignores this anyway)
I'm using the built-in tomcat with netbeans, and have included it in the lib directory of the web applcation, but the same error occurs.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
