Mysql development lib cannot be installed -> need mysql.h

Mandrake 10.0
Kernel 2.4.25

Hello everybody!
I kind of need the Mysql development librarys to interact with Mysql by API C. The problem is that when i run urpmi mysql, all the librarys are already installed. So i went to the mandrake site to see what was the package with mysql.h, i downloaded the package and clicked to install, but the message i got was "everything installed".

I ran a find / "mysql.h" and i haven't got that file in my pc. Maybe a bad instalation of the first package.

I talked to some of my friends but they didn't know how to help me.
Can i try a manual instalation, to put all the files in the right directorys?
Could u help me, i realy need that file, to work on databases course!

Your going to need to be more specific.. telling us that you downloaded "that file and clicked to install" tells us nothing of the actual packages your trying to install.

mysql version?
package your installing w/file you need?
exact errors if any?
and how your installing, double clicking thru Gui or command line?
