    Question Database Dilemma


    I am having a bit of a database dilemma. I am creating a database that requires the use of inheritance. I would have loved to do this in MySQL since it I have it running on my NT box at work and on Linux through my hosting provider. But unfortunately, as far as I know, MySQL doesn't support this feature. I can't understand why not since this is a fundamental feature of Object-Oriented programming.

    Anyway, I tried to install PostgreSQL on my NT box, but not with much luck. I tried installing it on my hosted linux box, but I couldn't do that either. Are there any good hosting providers that offer PostgreSQL? I am looking for something cheap and reliable. Or is there anyone who has installed PostgreSQL on windows that would be willing to share their expertise with me?

    Thanks!


    Thanks...I have Cygwin installed, the cygipc daemon, and PostgreSQL. Now I just have to learn to use it!

    I'm also trying to tackle an Oracle install too for a class I'm taking.
