    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.

    you can run MySQL from the command line - http://hotwired.lycos.com has stuff hidden in there somewhere

    Better option - get PHP (you sound like you will need it anyway) form http://www.php.net

    Make life easy with phpMyAdmin ( a php interface to MySQL - form http://www.phpwizards.com

    or get the lot! - http://www.firepages.com.au/bundle.php3 -

    if you use this (bundle) and if you already have mysql- you will need to edit the go.bat file that is in C:/phpdev/Apache

    After you do all that I have mentioned, then you simply run mysql by typing:

    mysql

    hitting the return key.

    If you want to learn SQL and MySql then check out the documentation at:
    www.mysql.com
