    1. if you install MySQL on your own computer, you can build at home do a dump of the db and then place that in your webspace.
    Or if you cant do that you can make the tables at home as they are 'only' text files see below

    # MySQL dump 5.10
    # Host: localhost Database: <db name>
    # Server version 3.22.12-beta

    # Table structure for table 'survey'
    CREATE TABLE survey (
    id int(10) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL auto_increment,
    ques1 text,
    ques2 text,
    email text,
    gender text,
    age text,
    PRIMARY KEY (id)

    # Dumping data for table 'survey'

    INSERT INTO survey VALUES ('1','Y','N','','MALE','30');


    and yes you can import other db's try

    for a load of links etc that should get you going
