Default How to downgrade mysql5x to mysql 4.1.7

I need to install mysql 4.1.x version in my centos 5.3 can any one tell me how to do that .
I have removed the mysql 5.x.x version using
#yum remove mysql

I tried to install rpm version
#wget http://www.oborona.net/stuff/MySQL-s...ibc23.i386.rpm
#rpm --nodeps -ivh MySQL-server-4.1.22-0.glibc23.i386.rpm
but after installing when I run
#service mysql start
Starting MySQL[ OK ]
#mysql -v
command not found
an I doing something wrong here

then when i try installing binary version i get this error
./scripts/mysql_install_db: line 85: ./bin/my_print_defaults: cannot execute binary file
./scripts/mysql_install_db: line 151: /usr/bsd/hostname: No such file or directory
Neither host '' nor 'localhost' could be looked up with
Please configure the 'hostname' command to return a correct hostname.
If you want to solve this at a later stage, restart this script with
the --force option

I am not sure what to do. can anyone throw some bright light!!!

Thank you

You must install the MySQL client package as well.
