Upon opening the cms on my machine.

This is the silverstripe 2.0.2 download, and I dont have a clue what I have done wrong!

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in C:\lighttpd\htdocs\sapphire\core\model\MySQLDatabase.php on line 21

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in C:\lighttpd\htdocs\sapphire\core\model\MySQLDatabase.php on line 22

Fatal error: DATABASE ERROR: Could connect to MySQL database in C:\lighttpd\htdocs\sapphire\core\model\Database.php on line 186

Any hekp would be appreciated :)

I haven't tried installing this in the Windows environment but it looks like an authentication error when you are connecting to MySQL. Have you supplied the correct authentication information to the installation script?
