Can you telnet or SSH (using putty or Terr Term SSH) to the RAQ? If so, do 
it by hand, and the best set of instructions is the "Soothingly Seamless 
setup of Linux Apache MySQL and PHP." I'd give you the URL, but the 
Internet is so slow here right now that I can't find anything, so search 
for it on Google. I think it's located at DevShed or Web Monkey.

Doing it that way you can compile everything from source, and the 
instructions are very good. You can also get the compile and install 
instructions, along with the source for each, from Apache, MySQL and PHP. 
Cross check those with "Soothingly Seamless" to get what you specifically 
want and run your ./conf for each accordingly. If it takes a couple of 
kicks, no sweat.

You don't have to use the --with-mysql option, but I believe it assume 
/usr/local/mysql. I always install MySQL in a different spot than the 
standard, so I always use that parameter.

One quirk to watch out for is that I've had MySQL install to 
/usr/local/bin/mysql, and  then the installation script added another 
"/bin/mysql". I think that was a Red Hat box. All I'm say is to not make 
any assumptions.

Oh, best version? Current one, 4.0.6.

You mentioned .pkg files, might Cobalt be using a Debian distribution? Log 
in and try executing dpkg or dselect -- it could be that Cobalt have the 
installation pointing only to their server. If so, go to the Debian web 
site and locate some additional servers.

Have fun - Miles Thompson
