I just installed MySql on my windows 98. I hope this helps:
1. Goto http://download.sourceforge.net/mirrors/mysql/Win32/ and download the file named, "mysql-shareware-3.22...".
2. Extract the file using what ever unzip program you have, and then run setup.exe.
That should install the MySql. The trick is running it after installing it. To do that, go to the directory where you installed MySql, and go to the directory bin. Run the program named "mysqld-shareware.exe"
Now you can run mysql, and start databasing.
Of course, this is a shareware version. It will probably run out in 30 days.
I hope this helps.

After you do all that I have mentioned, then you simply run mysql by typing:
hitting the return key.
If you want to learn SQL and MySql then check out the documentation at:
