Greetings all!

I have built a new server with MySQL and have noticed that before even 
doing anything
to it I found that the MySQL logins were much slower than the 4.0 server 
I used prior to it.
After moving data over to it, the application, (JFFNMS) when it would 
login to it would take
forever getting data from it.  It would finally get to a point where 
MySQL would not respond
to anything including MySQLAdministrator.  So I removed the 4.1 version 
that came with
CentOS 4, I downloaded and installed the latest 4.0 version from the 
MySQL website and
installed it and it is very fast even after moving the data to it.  The 
problem I have is that I
need php-mysql and perl-DBD-MySQL and when I install these two rpms, it 
removes the
MySQL-server and MySQL-client rpm's that I retrieved from the MySQL 
website.  So
I am at a loss of what to do.  I would prefere to go with MySQL 4.1 just 
because that is what
comes with CentOS 4, short of that I need php-mysql to work with 4.0.  
Databases and
custome building of RPM's is beyond my capabilities.

Any assistance will be GREATLY appreciated.
