enable root access from remote machines

Hi

I've installed mysql4 internally and took off the "enable root access from remote machines" tick upon install.

We now want to be able to access root  from remote machines, how can i do this please?

If you refer to root in MySQL, then issue the MySQL command:

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

Hi

in GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; is password our actual password or should i leave the text password?

sorry if it's dumb, i'm new to this.

Also on windows system so couldn't find a PermitRootLogin to change?
