Updating MySQL on Mandrake

I’ve been trying to work on updating our MySQL installation under Mandrake 10.0. I was hoping that Mandrake have Debian’s apt-get command. It turns out that it does — the URMPI. I’m almost there. I will update this post with the blow-by-blow account after I have successfully updated our MySQL server. I hope this will help a lot of newbie sysdamins out there.
