There are numerous methods that you could employ to get the job done -- any tutorial will give you just one way to do it, which might or might not be the best approach for you.
The task essentially boils down to a number of sub-tasks:
Grab the RSS document (from a remote location?)
Parse the XML into a PHP data structure (Arrays, Objects [SimpleXML, DOM, Custom?], etc.)
Add to MySQL database (MySQL extenstion, MySQLi, PDO, etc.)
