10-4. I realized it didn't look good when I saw it. -=X-( This
machine has just recently been drafted into service as a linux
machine. After fooling around with my first linux installation last
week, I decided to start with a clean install of YDL, (in order to
avoid problems like this). So, last night I reformatted the drive
again prior to installing YDL.

As of about 5 minutes ago, the latest install of mySQL seemed to
work! What did the trick was re-downloading the archive and blowing
away the /usr/local/mysql directory and the source directory I had
created. I'm happy, but a little nervous that there's still some
lurking problems. I'll let you know how things turn out. Thanks again
for your kind advice.
