I finally got MySQL server running but I'm afraid I did a
trouble-shooting no-no: I changed 2 things at once.
First, I went back to 5.0.21 instead of 5.0.41.
And when I changed my.ini to point to a different data dir, instead of
'restarting' the service from control panel, I stopped, then started it.
