    Does anyone know of a good tutorial or book introducing someone to Perl and MySQL?

    Are they a good combination?

    mSQL & MySQL from O'reilly is a good book on MySQL etc. It has a perl section on how to interact with a database.

    And read the perldoc DBI (just as good as any!)

    Perl and MySQL is a good combination, but I think PHP is probably easier.

    I got the MySQL & MSQL book, but I don't really use it that much... it's a good skim, but the online tutorials are much more helpful... If you don't have any experience in relational databases, the first chapter or two my be helpful... beyond that, the appendices can be found online... DevShed has a good tutorial, check it out.
