MySQL on Windows (5.5.16) - Need a way to analyze/tune my.ini settings

I have MySQL version 5.5.16 running on Windows Server 2003.

I'd like a way to analyze the configuration settings for what I have currently in my.ini.  I want the performance to be as efficient as possible, but may have some non-optimal settings, but don't know how to find out.

Are there any tools out there (free, if possible), that can analyze a my.ini file?
Or, is there a forum or site that has people who are willing to take a look at your file & give you feedback?

I don't know of any tool for windows but the following articles should help you determine optimal settings:


Re forum or site: EE? =)  Please note though that you do not look at my.ini on its own - it's always in relation to your actual data and usage.  You tune them side by side - add an index here, increase the buffer there.  We'll help you however we can, but you need to provide complete information.
