Could someone please give me some references where I could go, or what books I could read, that would help me in getting started setting up a MySQL database? My web hosting company already has MySQL installed on their servers, so all I am looking for is how to set up a database. I'm not even sure if I'm asking for the right thing. I've been doing HTML development for the past 6 years, and I have a need to start database stuff, so I feel like an incredible novice again. Thanks for any help you can give.

For a book: "MySQL" by DuBois from New Riders
Quite good for both newbies and intermediate users.
If you have access to PHP on your ISP try installing phpMyAdmin (http://www.htmlwizard.net/phpMyAdmin/) - it takes the grunt out of managing the DB's
