I have done a google search trying to find detailed info on creating a table using phpMyAdmin (as it is supplied by my server) but can only find ones that give a quick overview.  As I have never created a table before, and am trying to figure this out, is there such a thing.  I want to know what all the rules are for field, what do the choices in type do, what is collation, etc.....  I am assuming I need to have one field marked as primary and have it auto_increment, but would like to know why, and this type of thing.

Is there such a help manual/site available?

The MySQL refman is the best place to go... search for CREATE TABLE.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
