One observation:

- ACID 0.9.5 does not use ADODB.  This DB abstraction was
introduced in 0.9.6b2 (Jan 2001).  Hence, this addition into
acid_conf.php will be ignored.

Two recommendations:

- are you sure that you have CREATE permissions on the DB
user set in acid_conf.php?  If all else fails, try using the 
"create_acid_tbls_mysql.sql" to manually create the ACID 
tables.

- upgrade to a more recent version of ACID => 0.9.6b9.  There
are significant feature improvements as well as bug fixes.  If you
prefer an older version, upgrade to at least 0.9.6b1 for it has
a number of important bug fixes

cheers,
Roman
