Installing the MySQL GUI tools are pretty easy on Linux (Fedora - 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6) but there are a few prerequisites for setting them up. The following listed RPMs are required. I did a google search and then performed a quick download of them.
# rpm -i libsigc++20-2.0.6-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -i glibmm-2.4.7-1.rhfc3.nr.i386.rpm
# rpm -i gtkmm24-2.8.5-1.i386.rpm
# rpm mysql-gui-tools-5.0r12-1fc5.i386.rpm
# rpm mysql-administrator-5.0r12-1fc5.i386.rpm
Go to the Desktop Applications Menu and select the Programming Tab. You will see the MySQL Administor Icon. Select this icon and it will startup up MySQL Administrator in a windows environment. Then have fun! :)
