Depends on how it was installed in the first place. Was it by source or from a package (ie. rpm)? If it's from an rpm package, do 'man rpm' and read what flag you need to pass to remove the package. If it's by source, usually make uninstall does the trick. You can also blow away the directory tree that mysql lives in. Just know what you are doing before you do this.
