I'd suggest that you read the MySQL handbook. It's very comprehensive and should guide you through installation and initial configuration.

MySQL has a similar command-line interface (I've forgotten what it's called, probably "mysql", but the manual will tell you). Alternatively there are various GUI interfaces that you can use; or you could use Visula Studio in Windows.

in my college they have set up a server which i have never seen. and when we goto lab, we just type http://sqlserver/isqplus and we have to login using username and pass set by the server and then we code our database.
is there a way to do that with my two systems?

is there any online database like that which i can use ?

Sorry, should have given you a link. It's at: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/. You can also download any additional components, such as ODBC, JDBC, and .NET drivers, that you might need. It's a very good database system nowadays and seems (to me) to be much easier to use and better documented than MS SQL Server.

The default port is 3306 (see Section 4.2.2). Section 5.1.2 shows you how this can be changed with a command-line option. I believe that you have to allow both TCP and UDP through your firewall.
