    this should answer a lot of questions:
    http://idevelopment.info/data/MySQL/DBA_tips/

    along with: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/

    this file may answer your uninstalling question

    i always used # yum install mysql.

    uninstall using # rpm -e mysql<ver>

    use rpm -qa | grep mysql - the package manager will recognize it if it's installed, hopefully.
