2 mysql questions

Got 2 quick questions that i hope some of you people out there can
help me with.

1) I am currently running mysql 5.0 alpha on my server but a few
programs that worked on mysql 4 won't run properly on 5.0, so is it
possible to change some settings in mysql 5 so its backward compatible
with mysql 4 programs?`

2) What is the easiest way of upgrading from 5.0 to 5.0.1 under redhed
linux or webmin without loosing the data in database?

Thanks
