New to MySQL

Threaded View

I have installed MySQL under Linux and it's now running...

I have created a DB and a few tables and populated them...

How do I query the tables now ? I have enter SQL statements at the command
prompt however some are quite complex and surely don't have to be reentered
every time ?

I found a package called "query browser" but to date have been unable to get
it to work... is this the correct package for executing queries on the db ?

I am migrating from SQL Server where I could use stored procedures and views
however I understand these are still in development and to be realeased in
version 5.

You use phpmyadmin to interact with the db (easier than using prompt).
 It is kind of equiv. to sql serverís Enterprise Manager.

I would buy a nice introductory book...
