mysql user table corruption

Hi all!

i have a problem.

I was just playing around with the MySQL User table, trying to create a new user, change the password, etc. (i know that i shouldn't have!)

Now, the table is corrupted and I dont know how to recover it.

please tell me how to get back to normal again without re-installing MySQL

[because I am using Fedora Core 5 and the 'add/remove software' application doesnt work ]

thank you

I don't remember the exact command, but if you delete the user database, then restart mysql it will re-create the default user database.
