Thanks for the reply Nick.  Unfortunately I was at a standstill for a few
days and I received no replies on my queries on the Mandriva Club forum or
the Myth forum.  I took things into my own hands and now I believe that I
have a bigger mess.  Perhaps itís best that you (or anyone else) reply to
the new topic that describes more of the details of my current situation. 
Here is the new subject.

Neebie Help Please!! Mandriva 2006 mysqld and mysql neither working
