mention in mysql doc " mysql_install_db does not overwrite any existing privilege tables"

If I want to remove privilege table where the path
and if I've already remove it ,Can I create a new one with
mysql_install_db command?


Where the mysql config file live in Fedora core3 ?
Sorry I know I should post this in Distribution forum
But I think it's common and every destro may be the same.

Technically you can install MySQL anywhere you like, but it is indeed fairly standard across distributions.

Why do you want to remove the privilege table manually? Why not issue a few REVOKE ALL PRIVILEGES commands in mysql ?

PS I believe that mysql_install_db does install/overwrite existing privileges tables.
