What is the distro you are using? And what was the method you used while installing it?

Based on your user info you are using Fedora, so have to options:
Either choose from the Applications menu System Tools and then Add/Remove Software (this is for Gnome), or run 'yum remove mysql' (and any other mysql-related stuff, like mysql-devel, etc).
