Hi experts,
I've been programming for years in VB and MsAccess, and I also have some experience with ASP, Btrieve (old timer with Novell, je je je). Anyways, I am interested in learning a new way of programming for the Web, and I thought about Flash, AS3, and MySql. The problem is that I am a novice with MySQL (I know hoy to do queries, SQL statements, etc... with Access), but I do not even know how to create, open, update, etc a database in MySql  I don't even know the extension of the database :(
I am willing to learn it, and I am very object-visual learner (by examples), so if you know of a very basic tutorial on how to begin, please feel free to send it :)
I am also open for any suggestions !!!

The first is fairly basic, but still good.  The second is much more detailed:

I learned a lot about MySQL from this site:

I found it very helpful to set up a localhost server to test queries, and eventually the interaction with flash.

I have also learned a bunch from Navicat, which allows you to interactively build queries, design tables, etc.
