Default Mysql and Dos

I'm very confused here, but I'll do my best to describe my problem.

I installed MySQL 4.0.20d on my desktop (XP Home), then deleted it and reinstalled it on the C: drive

Because of this Dos sees the current server installed on C:/Documents and Settings/mr. mojo risin/Desktop/mysql-4.0.20d-win-noinstall/mysql-4.0.20d-win-noinstall/bin/mysqld-nt.exe

So when I do NET START MySQL it says System error 2 has occured The system cannot find the file specified

When I run createmovie.php from chapter 3 pg 98 I get this error

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061) in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\test\createmovie.php on line 4
Hey loser, check your server connection.

How do I fix this? I'm hoping it's as easy as typing some stuff in Dos, but DOS is pretty alien to me. Please Help! Thanks.
