adding a jdbc driver to pentaho design studio and configuring the datasource


adding a jdbc driver to pentaho design studio and configuring the datasource  using -'jdbc,driver,pentaho'

I've just integrated pentaho's design studio into the BI server. Does anyone know how to add mysql jdbc drivers. I need to connect in order to define the relational action process.
In my research I found:

http://wiki.bizcubed.com.au/xwiki/bin/view/Pentaho%20Tutorial/Install%20Pentaho%20Design%20Studio#Comments

which specifies selecting
JDBC Driver, Edit, Extra Class Path from Preferences but no such preference exists,

http://forums.pentaho.com/showthread.php?85148-Design-Studio-xaction-database-connection-dropdown-list-empty&highlight=add+jdbc+driver+to+design+studio

which resulted in me creating a jdbc folder in which I placed the drivers in plugins\org.pentaho.designstudio.editors.actionsequence_4.0.0.stable\lib\
but just as the author of the thread I'm stuck

http://forums.pentaho.com/showthread.php?53303-Create-a-new-datasource&highlight=add+jdbc+driver+to+design+studio

suggests that:
3. If you are using the Pentaho DesignStudio you have to copy your jdbc (JAR files) to the plugins directory (in pentaho plugin) so you can develop, deploy and run your applications. This apply also to eclipse plugin (If you have now an Eclipse).
Which resulted in me placing the jar files in the plugin directory to no avail.

    talks of a directory, rdw which does not exist

Any form of assistance will be greatly appreciated.
