Angry Redhat packages and Mysql upgrade


Just installed Redhat 8, which come with MySQL version 3.23.

I was hoping everything will work out of box, but it didn't. the daemen will crash consistantly when I try to connect to it remotely while everything works fine on the local console.

After all sort of tweaks and messing around with the default permission table, i have decided that it's too broken to fix...

I am hoping to upgrade the package, and all the problem will magically go away.

I ran into problem, though. When I query the RPM database, I got something as follows:
> rpm -qa | grep mysql | sort
libdbi-dbd-mysql-0.6.5-2
mod_auth_mysql-1.11-10
mysql-3.23.52-3
mysql-devel-3.23.52-3
mysql-server-3.23.52-3

However, the RPM package which I download from mysql.com are:
> ls -1 *.rpm
MySQL-4.0.4-0.i386.rpm
MySQL-client-4.0.4-0.i386.rpm
MySQL-devel-4.0.4-0.i386.rpm
MySQL-shared-4.0.4-0.i386.rpm

notice, that package name is different (i.e. in different case)

QUESTION 1:

Would the RPM cleaver enough to replace the old 3.23.52 with my 4.04 using the -U command? if not, is there anyway to force to replace the package?

QUSTION 2:

Even with successful upgrade, would it broke other packages such as:

libdbi-dbd-mysql-0.6.5-2
mod_auth_mysql-1.11-10
php-mysql-4.2.2-8.0.5


Thanks
