Hi Per 

I assume you downloaded the trial/shareware version 3.21.29 of mysql.
Just install it.

After that you have to start the mysql server from a DOS commandline by:
C:\mysql\bin> mysqld --standalone

If you are on a NT4 machine, you alternatively can install the mysql server as service
C:\mysql\bin> mysqld --install
and then start it with:
c:\mysql\bin> net start mysql

For using mysql via ODBC you need the mysql ODBC driver called MyODBC.

You should read at least the C:\mysql\README file and the manual in the C:\mysql\Docs
