I am new to using mySQL. I installed foxserv today and have been using my basic SQL skills to get around the sample databases that were installed with the .exe file. I am also using a beginner's guide that is suggesting if the install didn't place some .cnf files in my c:/mysql/directory then i shoud consider typing them in notepad and saving them there. My question is that I am using mySQL along with Apache. Should I place the my.cnf files in the root folder of Apache or should I place them at the highest level of the mysql "tree"?

Thanks for the help?

Definitely not apache -- on windows, you should have it in your MySQL install directory, and possibly in your WINDOWS directory as well. I don't recall where the linux file is supposed to be.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
