slash_axl_rose_upen wanted us to know:
I want to learn mysql on linux but i have not worked
with sql also
how do i get started and which is a good book for sql
thnkx in advance
Please do not cross post.
Since you say you haven't worked with SQL before, it might be better to
get started with postgresql.
There are tons of information out there for you to get started. Make
sure you have a reference to Generic SQL, and not extensions like P/SQL.
There are also programs that "translate" your queries into SQL.
The best way to learn is by doing. You learn to code by _writing_ code,
and not by _reading_ books. Just like you learn to ride a bicycle by riding
it and not by reading how to ride. 
 I don't claim to be the first person to say that.

In mathematics or physics, simplifying can be complicated.
