I am a Linux first timer and am trying to install MySQL 5.0.19 on to Debian V3.1r1
I am using this document as a reference: http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/mysql/doc/refman/5.0/en/installing-binary.html
I want MySQL to be installed in /etc/mysql
Can someone please tell me how to do this? i.e. where to put the .tar.gz file, etc... im really lost.
Thanks in advance
