Are you planning to install mysql on a windows machine or linux machine – Vinayak Mahadevan Jun 15 '10 at 15:31

I think you need to clarify your question a little by providing more details. If you are installing on Windows, you will need the appropriate MSI file. If you are installing on Linux, you will either need the appropriate package, or you will need to download the source and compile it.

In Windows, you can access it from the command prompt via the mysql command. In Linux, you will need to access it from the terminal, via the mysql command. Alternatively, you could use something like phpmyadmin.

Locate the default download directory or force the download to save in your Desktop folder.
