Talking Mysql


I am a first time user to linux, i have installed Linux Redhat 9 on a test system and playing around with it and think that i am putting it on my own system.
I am really liking it. One thing though i have heard abouy MYSQL and was worndering if it came with redhat 9 and if so where can i find it and install it if need be.
I am very new to linux but i am learning a lot every time i log on to it.

Thanks

I am no linux-expert but I fetched mysql from their homepage and installed it on my slackware machine, easy even for me since it comes with very good documentation.

You can find what you need here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/index.html

There was an option to install it when you installed Red Hat 9.

Try
Code:
cd /usr/bin
mysql_install_db
./safe_mysqld &   (this might not work)
./mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
service mysql start
You can find some good MySQL tutorial sites around. I believe there's even on on the MySQL website.
