Perhaps if you explain your problem in a bit more detail you might get a few responses

You say "set up" MySQL, does that mean it's installed? What have you done already, and what are you trying to do? Help us out here...

To do what?!!??! How do you want to access the data? You are being very obtuse.

If you want to start using mysql simply type "mysql -uroot" from the command line and you can start creating databases and adding users or whatever it is you want to do.

If you don't know how to do ANY of these things I suggest you read the tutorial which is included in the docs at www.mysql.com which will get you started.

Setup Mysql with server for what type of purpose? Apache/PHP? For something like a forum? What? You need to be more specific.

Do a ps -ef is Mysql running?
If not type ntsysv and go down to mysql and hit space to put an astric there. This will cause Mysqld to start when your system boots up. Then you can use mysql with any normal user to use a default database called "test" or you can create different databases. I think you need to read the mysql docs: http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/index.html

This is the fourth time you have told us exactly the same thing, and I am really getting weary of it.

Guess what, you already have MySQL setup in such that it is installed on your computer. You need a scripting language to query your database and arrange the data in a useful manner on a webpage, be it php, perl, python, or any other.

We have already directed you to the mysql docs for how to populate your database. I don't much feel like explaining the basics of how a webserver, database and scripting language interact with each other. I am sorry about the rude tone of this post but really, you say your in university, then you should possess some research skills right?

Do some homework, and when you have a SPECIFIC problem feel free to post it here.
