Installing a DB is a whole other story. Read the docs and howto guides over at mysql.com if you need to learn how a database works, if mysql is what your using, etc.
PS. You should know a little about mysql if your going to be using a forum that totally relies on it, it would be stupid not to know nothing about it IMHO. Regards.
