The GRANT command question

P: n/a
I have recently set up mySQL on a Mandrake release of Linux (Version 7 of
Mandrake, I believe), using the binary 4.0.13 standard release.

The set up and start up all were normal, as far as I could tell, with no
warnings or error messages.

In nearly all respects, the database appears to be running as expected. I
have the book "PHP and mySQL Web Development" by Luke Welling and Laura
Thomson, and have been working through the examples there.

The question I have is about the GRANT command, and the apparent results
there. I don't know if my problem is one of understanding what the results
should be, or if I have another problem.

I am attempting to set up an administrative user, that has the same
privileges as root. I have been able to set up a user that appears to have
all privileges, with the exception of GRANT privileges to other users. This
user can create new database tables, insert records, modify them, delete
them and so on.

But, when this user tries to GRANT privileges on any database, even ones it
has created, an 'access denied' error is generated.

I am obviously missing some part of the process, but I am not sure what it
is. Can you explain the piece I am missing? I would appreciate it very much.

PS: I submitted a much more detailed message showing the GRANT table set up
and so on, but it was rejected by the filters. If this information would
help someone answer my question, let me know and I can send it directly,
