    The mysql package can be removed with thr rpm command
    view your man rpm pages for exact syntax.

    Do a search on where the MySql installation is. You should then stop the server and backup the existing data (the data should be stored in /var/lib/...). Extract the new self-extracting binary of MySql to another directory and point it to the data dir. You might also want to point to your my.cnf file as well if you're using some custom params.
