Also, how can I tell if mySQL is installed, and if it is not, how do I install it?

This worked for me.

or
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/RailsOnUbuntu (includes mysql install)

To see if you have mysql installed you can either open Synaptec and search form mysql and see if any of the mysql-server-x.x is installed, or you can check for the init script under /etc/init.d/mysql. If it exists, you got it.
