Trying to install MSQL on NT.

Downloaded
App :
            Msql Win32 server 2.09 (installed ok)

Modules :
            Msql-Mysql-module-1.2200.tar.gz
            DBI-1.09.tar.gz
            Data-ShowTable-3.3.tar.gz

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------
making these modules with nmake (ms c++) gives errors.
Starting with Data :: ShowTable, which is needed by Msql, "perl makefile.pl"

        perl makefile.pl [ENTER]
        Checking if your kit is complete...
        Looks good
        Writing Makefile for Data::ShowTable

nmake gives:

        nmake [ENTER]

Stop.

This is where i get stuck with (ms) nmake.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------

with make (cygwin) i get errors from the first moment

make [ENTER]
Makefile:667: *** missing separator.  Stop.

if I place a tab in front of line 667
D:\Data-ShowTable-3.3>make
Makefile:668: *** missing separator.  Stop.

if I place a tab in front of line 668
D:\Data-ShowTable-3.3>make
The name specified is not recognized as an
internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
make: *** [config] Error 1

This is where i get stuck with (cygwin) make
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there any solution to the above??

Is there a 1off way of "make"ing modules??

Please remember, my platform is Windows NT.
I have easily installed DBI from activestates website, using ppm. That was
painless.
Is there a place where I could find these modules as packages (msql, and
data aren't on activestate's website)?

Is there a way of making modules install like packages?

Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you in advance.

PS. If any of the above questions seem naive please excuse me.
We are all, beginers somewhere at somepoint, however good we are in other
areas!!!!
I know I am in this area, and I know I am appealing to the more advanced
users of perl.
