I appreciate the replies Will and MajorGeek.
I've actually gone through the kbase and I am able to set up a database. In fact I believe I have two set up. What I'm clueless in how to do is actually use those databases. Essentially, what I'm asking is where do I go from where those links leave off?
Lets say I want to create a phone book. I create my database and user. How do I create different tables and then add data into them? I'll worry about how to search through them later, in the meantime I want to learn how to add data to my databases.
Does that makes senese?
Thanks for any help!
