Hard time with installing MySQLdb for Python on Linux


I am having hard time with installing MySQLdb on Linux.

My Python version is 2.3. I have downloaded
"MySQL-python-1.2.1_p2.tar.gz" from sourceforge. The README file
asks for MySQL installation. My MySql server is on another box. That is
why I think I should to install just the MySql client (am I right?).

My Linux is "Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant)"

These RPMs are available on the MySql download for "Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 RPM (x86) downloads":

Shared libraries
Shared compatibility libraries (3.23, 4.x, 5.x libs in same package)
Headers and libraries
Test suite
Debug information

Which one of above RMPs should I install on my RedHat box to be able to
make "MySQL-python-1.2.1_p2.tar.gz" work?

Any help would be appreciated,

Why don't you just use yum to install python-mysql or whatever the
package is called, and have it automatically work out what else is
