Question MySQL problems in Redhat9

I'm a long time user of Redhat and is now testing the new Redhat 9 on a project. Have tried a clean install without apache, php, mysql then used tar.gz sources to install it all failed.

Now this is try number four I installed Redhat 9 and during the installation chose apache , php and mysql.

Apache 2.0 works fine very nice might update my computer at home.
PHP works fine but MySQL won't work I can't run mysql_install_db because "you must run make install first"
I can't find safe_mysqld or mysqladmin there gone.

What to do?
Where is the mysql makefile that needs the make install?

Please say that I'm not the only one with this problem.

I'm not a linux/mysql expert, but I can tell you what I know.

safe_mysqld has been replaced by mysqld_safe (however, I believe there is supposed to be a symlink)

I've been successful installing mysql 4 (binary version). Have you tried installing the binaries instead?
