I'm just a beginner!
#1---I've followed all instructions under the windows installation but I'm very confused.On page 9 to start MySqL for windows me it says to open a command prompt and proceed to the MySql bin directory and run your chosen server program by typing c:\mysql\bin> mysqld-opt

I've opened my command prompt and it immediately says: Bad command or file name

When typing the above mysql command i still get Bad command or file name. Please help???

#2---Post Installation Setup Tasks p.20
How do I set my root password??? How do I get to my bin directory of mysql installation where I'm suppose to type: mysqladmin -u root password "my new password"

Although I was confused about doing these things the first php script today.php worked fine.
