Subject: MySQL ver. 5.1 installation (Windows) questions
I recently purchased the "Head First SQL" book, and I'm at the point of installing the MySQL installation (Appendix ii, pages 544-547). Since this book was published in 2007, MySQL 5.0 has been upgraded to MySQL 5.1. The author's directions are dated along with the website screenshots. I'm confused as to which installation package and install type.
My computer has Windows XP operating system (32-Bit, I have administrative rights) installed on it.
Finally, the author also mentions "MySQL Query Browser." does this come with the installation package for MySQL 5.1?
