Step 1 - UNINSTALL the Fedora version. 1) it's old and there is a much more stable version out there 2) the binaries are easier to work with.
Step 2 - Download version 4.1 from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/index.html
and get the binaries from there.
Step 3 - Read the README on the installation. Email me directly or just look up on here if you have any problems.
Step 4 - To add a computer account, log onto mysql (on Fedora) using the
shell> mysql -u <username> -p <database_name>
mysql> GRANT <privileges> ON <database> TO 'username'@'computer_name' IDENTIFIED BY <password> USING GRANT OPTION;
<privildges> range from SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE (see documentation or MySQL CC for other options)
'username'@'comp_name' you must use the backticks. Use '%' as a wildcard (example ... to '_darklordizm_'@'%' ... means any computer anywhere. This can be a security problem, so it's best if you put the individual hostname in for every user).
That's it. Email me if you have any other questions!
