Thanks a lot for that, Russ.  The difference between our two setups is 
that you've done the SuSE 10.0 YaST install of mysql 4.1.  I needed to 
upgrade from that to MySQL 5.0, because I wanted to use stored 
procedures.  The result is that I had to do a binary install from files 
supplied by MySQL on their site.  It was either that or upgrade to SuSE 

However, I think I've sorted it by altering my /etc/my.cnf file.  Time 
will tell :)

Thanks for trying.  It's appreciated.
