I've just installed mysql, I think I followed the instructions ok, but I can't get to run mysql to create a database. the black screen just flashes away, can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

"The black screen"? Sounds like you're just running mysqld from a windows box. If so, this just starts the server itself. You'll need to use the mysql command-line client interface (or a suitable GUI, like the Query Browser) to actually issue SQL statements, such as CREATE DATABASE. Assuming your server is set up correctly, read [a href=\"http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/tutorial.html\" target=\"_blank\"]this section[/a] of the MySQL manual, and you should be able to connect and make a database in no time.

Hope that helps.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
