setting external database error

Im using Instant Rails (turning off the mysql server part), Mysql 5.1
on another computer. and have these settings in database.yml

  adapter: mysql
  database: jumba_development
  username: root
  password: asdasd

and i get "Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)",

any thought on why that would happen ?

sorry about trouble fixed it,

did a "gem install mysql" and fixed it.
