All, just not python, Mysql-python package is needed if you're going to be accessing mysql database by using the python programming language.

Try www.mysql.com and browse the documentation section, it's greatly written!
It includes the install how-to via RPMs, so you won't have huge problems at startup already!

Good luck!

purtuhu,
when you look closer at the file names you will see the differences:

mysql .... is the client
mysql-devel....  advanced libraries, - not required
mysql-python... if you need to access mysql using python
mysql-server... the actual server

If you want to run mysql on a single pc, you should install the client and the server, - the other two are optional.
