i am fairly new to mysql. I need to add a new column to a table and it works fine when using the following command:

alter table table name add column name int(10) first;

however i wish to also make it the new primary key of the table and also to assign it an auto increment value. How do i go about doing this?? Thanks.

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