Hello. I am an aspiring dba. First off, one of my difficulties lie in connecting to MySql via Sequel Pro(formally cocoa sql) I am running on a Mac OS X 10.4, (Client- Sequel Pro), (Server- MySQl 4.1.22)

When I try to connect to MySql, I login in as "localhost" via Sequel Pro; however, after I execute the query, I get error messages, either for the syntax or for denied
access by the "localhost".

Please let me know your suggestions regarding if I need different versions of the software, or if i should use a completely different client or server, being a beginner. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
