The following code, run from NetBeans IDE on Vista SP1 Home Edition:
p require('dbi')
p require('odbc')
p DBI.available_drivers
dbh= DBI.connect('dbi:ODBC:cookbook','root')

Produces:
true
true
["dbi:Proxy:", "dbi:ODBC:"]
C:/users/gordon/Ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/dbi.rb:368:in `load_driver':
Could not load driver (uninitialized constant DBI::TypeUtil)
(DBI::InterfaceError)

 from
C:/Users/Gordon/Documents/NetBeansProjects/BeansTest1/lib/main.rb:4

'cookbook' (from InstantRails, which is running)is a data source with a
32-bit Mysql ODBC driver, v5.1, installed with the SysWOW data source
installer.

Where do I go from here?

Thanks in advance for your kindness.
