Well I know this is a littel off topic here. I tried doing a new install in a temp directory. When I answered the questions about db name I of course used the original database name. Bad idea. ZC over wrote without even a warning. And of course, I didnt save DB first because I thought ZC would warn me first.

So here I am now with a tar file that sadistic tech support techs handed to me after I bravely told them I could easily restore the database if they gave me the file. And they gave me it in a format that they knew would keep me busy for quite some time. ie MYI, frm, and MYD files.

So....deep breath. Punt?

Any easy way to reassemble this database from what they gave me? I really dont want to have to crawl back to them.
