PHP and MySQL don't understand each other on the Windows XP Platform

I have PHP 5.02 talking to MySQL , however PHP is talking to MySQL ClientAPI version 3.23.57 but MySQL 4.0.21 is installed. I need PHP to realize that MySQL 4.0.21 is installed and that is the clientAPI it should be talking to.

I know that libmysql.dll in the windows  sys32 folder plays a part in how PHP  talks to mySQL but if you update the dll with version 4.0.21 it refuses to talk to MySQL.

Why aren't these two getting along with each other?
