    My advice is to first search for BCNF (Boyce codd normal form) this is something that was written in the 70's and we still use it today these are the rules all RDBMS follow. I cannot stress enogth that you should learn the rules of normaliztion otherwise you will never understand how RDBMS work and your schema's will sux IMO!! Then onto learning SQL read the basics like create, insert, update etc.. and make sure you are use to using them. Then go onto joins, subselects and more you will love these after using normal selects etc... I learnt what i know from beginning php4 database by Wrox (ISBN 1-861007-82-5) which has alot of info not just on RDBMS but OODBMS, ODBC and more great book IMO but it does have a bit of php stuff in there so it might not be the right book for you. And for websites mySQL's website has information on all the commands and search Google for the pointers i have hopefully given you. HTH
