Well, first I'd find out what mysql rpm's I have installed:

rpm -qa | grep mysql

Then remove the whatever packages it says you have installed related to mysql by doing:

rpm -e <package name>

Then just to make sure run:

updatedb
locate mysql | more

I'm not sure if deleting the rpm's leaves the mysql databases so check to make sure that /var/lib/mysql has been deleted. That is where all the mysql databases are created by default.

Ok I have reinstalled 'MySQL-server-4.0.18-0' & 'MySQL-client-4.0.18-0' . they are both working correctly and I also have httpd (apache2) installed aswell. Php (4) seems to be working correctly but in my phpinfo.php page MySQL is not mentioned anywhere and doesn't seem to be working with my login process on my website. Any ideas on what might be wrong?

I think you need to install the php-mysql package or mysql-php package. I forget what its called.
