Please...... that's an advantage? Do you base your company philosophy on
this? Implementing the ol' income - software price - legal fees - downtime +
legal earnings = net revenue formula, huh? "Dear stockholders, we hope to
increase your stock price by suing our software vendors, and maybe doing
some work on the side."

What a pointless thread. The original poster running Linux-X11-Netscape uses
MediaOne's RoadRunner and was _apparently_ able to setup/masq. his cable
connection but struggles with MySQL?

I assumed his complaint was installing MySQL, which has little to do with
MySQL and more to do with the environment used to install. If he did install
successfully then perhaps his deficiency is using standard SQL? Or perhaps
coding around features MySQL lacks, hmm.. maybe a programming deficiency?

More often than not, complaints on this list have absolutely nothing to do
with MySQL specifically -- surprisingly most _still_ get answered, go
figure.
