MySql installation on Solaris10 problem

Hi Group,
I am new to MySql. I installed Solaris 10 on a Pentium machine. Then i
came to know that MySql comes bundled with Solaris 10. So i installed
MySql which came with the Solaris 10. Then i checked the version of the
MySql i installed using mysqlcheck -V and the version shown was 4.0.24.
I wanted the latest version of MySql (5.0) to be installed in the
Pentium machine. So i downloaded the
mysql-max-5.0.21-solaris10-i386.pkg.gz and installed it as before and
started the MySql server. Again i checked the version and it is still
4.0.24 instead of showing 5.0.21. I dont know what went wrong. The
reason i wanted the latest version of MySql is to use the MySql
cluster.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers
Shan

Sounds like the new MySQL version installed its binaries to a different
location than the old version, but your PATH environment variable is
causing your shell to find the old binaries first.
