    This is assuming you’ve added the file mootools.js to a folder named “js” within your theme.

    Before wp_head() in your theme’s header.php file, add this:

    wp_enqueue_script('mootools', get_bloginfo('template_directory') .'/js/mootools.js', false, '1.1.1');

    Ahh, thank you! Got it up ;]

    I’m having that problem right now.
    My mootools effect works without error on a static version and not at all on the wordpress version even though I have enqueued the scripts correctly and am not running any other scripts. It doesn’t even render any errors. i am at a loss!

    <?php wp_enqueue_script('mootools', get_bloginfo('template_directory') .'/js/mootools/mootools.js' , 'false' , '1.2.0'); ?>
    <?php wp_enqueue_script('filterExpand' , get_bloginfo('template_directory') .'/js/mootools/filterExpand.js' ,  array( 'mootools' ) , '1.2.0'); ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    I am developing a MooTools accordion WordPress theme, which can be downloaded here. Perhaps looking at how that theme is set up will help get you rolling.
