Installing Joomla on Yahoo! Small Business Hosting - MySQL error

Hello!

I'm in the process of installing Joomla on a Yahoo! Small Business Hosting service that my client has.  I created a user and password for the database and installed phpMyAdmin to manage the databases.  When I get to the part of the installation script for Joomla that requires the script connect with the database i get the following code (snippet attached).

I know this means that the script is actually connecting with the database but i'm unclear as to what is happening now.  Has anyone ever encountered this before?  Please offer any assistance you can.  

Thank you.

Probably wrong database name.  Unlikely that your database is named 'mysql'.

It actually is.  Changed it from localhost on the config document AND the auto install.  No dice.

Sorry - on Yahoo - both the host name and the default database name are "mysql"  I even created a separate db with phpmyAdmin with a different name and tried that.  Still nothing.
Here's an article about the database problem: http://groups.google.com/group/joomlaug/browse_thread/thread/3a9e6e21ea6874c0/c5b7c7765b3461fb

There are many articles about problems with Joomla and Yahoo hosting.  No '.htaccess' or FTP thru PHP allowed.  Business hosting may be different.  ??
