mySql import syntax needed.

I have a dump file created with:

mysqldump --allow-keywords --opt -uroot -p<mypassword> --all-databases > everything_mysql.sql

Is it possible to list what databases are in the dump file and import just some of them to a new server, or do I have to import everything that's in the dump file to the new server? if it's possible to import just some of the databases in the dump file... what is the syntax? and also what is the syntax if I can only import everything?
And if the export was done in MySQL 4.1 is there any problem importing it into version 5?
The MySQL which the dump file is taken from is from Windows XP machine, will there be any problem importing the dump file into linux MySQL?

Hi,

For the compatibility there should not be a problem. (forward and also cross OS)

shell> mysqldump [options] db_name [tables]
shell> mysqldump [options] --databases db_name1 [db_name2 db_name3...]
shell> mysqldump [options] --all-databases

if you use --databases then you can specify which to download
