1. What do I do with these settings?
   2. Are they absolutely necessary?
   3. Why are they there in the first place?
   4. Can I comment them out or are they needed?
   5. Was I supposed to install MySQL first? Is that a requirement?

Can we please be a little more diligent here and clean this crap up?
