Installing MySQL is a first step.  You also need to download a JDBC 
driver for MySQL, which you can do from the MySQL Web site:

Once you have downloaded the JDBC driver, you will find a JAR file with 
a name something like "mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar".  This is the 
JAR file that should be renamed to "driver.jar" and placed in the 
Protege installation directory.  This process of saving your project in 
a database is actually outlined in the Protege User's Guide here:

The screenshots are outdated, but the text is helpful.  Protege will an 
display error message if you try to save your project in a database, but 
do not have everything configured properly.
