The Perl module DBD::mysql isn't installed.  Try something like:
sh# perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.48)
ReadLine support enabled

cpan> install DBD::mysql
<stuff gets installed>

Note that CPAN will need to be configured before you can use it, but the
configuration is simple (just answer questions etc)
Note that you can also download the modules from CPAN via FTP, unpack
them and install it manually (usually via perl Makefile.PL && make)

The list of required modules is at
http://www.sisd.com/freeside/docs/install.html , the last item in the
list is the DBD driver.
