If you're on unix (or linux), there are many excellent database servers: MySQL and PostgreSQL are two freely (GPL) available servers. I know MySQL comes with an excellent reference that you can print and read. A&W published a book about Postgres and several chapters are available from their website. The DBI interface is both powerful and easy to learn and the documentation will get you started using databases from perl.
If you're on MS Windows, then I don't know since it's been years since I did anything on Windows.
Hope this helps,,,
