    MySQL installation issue

    hi all, newbie here

    i'm trying to install a MySQL server on my PC following some instructions in mysql manual.

    but i received this messages which confuses me..
    NOTE: This is a MySQL binary distribution. It's ready to run, you don't
    need to configure it!

    To help you a bit, I am now going to create the needed MySQL databases
    and start the MySQL server for you. If you run into any trouble, please
    consult the MySQL manual, that you can find in the Docs directory.

    Installing MySQL system tables...
    Filling help tables...

    To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy
    support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

    To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
    ./bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
    ./bin/mysqladmin -u root -h localhost.localdomain password 'new-password'

    Alternatively you can run:

    which will also give you the option of removing the test
    databases and anonymous user created by default. This is
    strongly recommended for production servers.

    See the manual for more instructions.

    You can start the MySQL daemon with:
    cd . ; ./bin/mysqld_safe &

    You can test the MySQL daemon with
    cd mysql-test ; perl

    Please report any problems with the ./bin/mysqlbug script!

    with the command:
    ./bin/mysqladmin version
