Click on go-pear.bat in the php directory. Choose local install and follow the instrcutions. Once finished, open your php.ini file (in the apache2/bin directory) and modifiy the include_path instruction to add the path to the pear directory. The line should look to somthing like this :

include_path= ".;c:\wamp\php\pear"

(don't forget to delete the ; in front of the line).

Reboot your server, now pear is installed.

You now need to install the db package.

For that, open a dos window, go to c:\wamp\php and type

pear install db

This will download and install the db package.
That's it you can now use it by including the db.php file in your scripts.
