Thumbs down Learning linux


Hai
I am new to the linux OS.I am using the cent os 5.4 I have two questions with me now.
one is that where will i get a nice documentation of the linux
and second one is that i want to start my mysqld service.
when i run the service mysqld status it shows something like this
mysqld: unrecognized service

but when i navigate to the /usr/local/src and try to install the latest mysql rpm file it is giving an error.
file /usr/bin/mysql from install of newmysql conflicts with the file from package oldmysql

what could be the problem.
Please help

Another place to start off is tldp.org/.
For mysql issue, there is a chance it has not been installed. the rpm command Chris gave will tell if mysql is installed.

You will also need to install mysql-server to run mysql daemon and server. This package should be available in the repositories as well as the distribution media.
