Upgrading to MySQL 4 problems

Im trying to upgrade 3.23 on my redhat 9 machine. I
have one lone perl-dbd-mysql libmysqlclient dependency
that is throwing me off. when i try to upgrade it
wont go. so i try to uninstall that perl rpm and it
says its mysql 3.23 needs it and when i try to
uninstall mysql 3.23 it says the perl dbd needs it.
how do i get around this catch?

when i try to unistall the mysql i get this:

[root@localhost root]# rpm -e mysql-3.23.54a-11
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3

so when i try to uninstall the perl i get this:

[root@localhost root]# rpm -e perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3
error: Failed dependencies:
perl-DBD-MySQL is needed by (installed) mysql-3.23.54a-11

I cant just use the MySQL 4 rpm to upgrade becuase it lists a ton of dependencies that wont let me proceed. Any ideas?
