Hi ranchers.
As you know, Mysql 4.0.4 use ISO-8859-1 charset by default.
I want to change this attribute, and I have read Mysql docs and find the following:
//******
To change the default set, use the --with-charset option
shell> ./configure --with-charset=CHARSET
//******
ok, but I am using WinXP, and I have installed Mysql in the dir "F:\MySQL"
so please tell how to deal with this command using WinXP.
(I mean, please give the right command for windows).

The ./configure stuff is usually done when you build something from source code on a unix/linux system. So it could be that you will have to do that somehow on your windows system.
On the other hand I just found this. It looks as if you can change the default character set when you start the server.
