No, it is not even mentioned in the tutorial...
I tried to go on with installing MySQL and postfix. I kept getting a ton of errors:
1) MySQL could not install because it was missing some dependencies mysql-client and mysql-common. I tried installing these and it said that I was missing perl(dbi).
2) I could not connect to localhost through telnet...
Never had such problems. Make sure you follow the tutorial to the letter (except where you have to provide custom information).
One question: is it maybe a 64-bit Mandirva you're trying to install? Maybe that's why some of the packages are missing.
