It's ok... its all a mute point because earlier today I did everything 
in true linux tradition: I fixed it until I broke it and I broke it but 
good. MySQL no longer runs on that LAMP server. Now it's just a LA_P 
server. :-) and doing a fine job running Sendmail I might add.

I've just had to move all the databases over to the host I'm migrating 
to a little earlier than I'd planned.
