If you want to use your mysql with PHP.(I think on the internet it is the most usual way to use MySQL) then yes. And the '--with-mysql=shared,/usr' line is a configuration command of PHP.

Yes sure, because php-mysql is only a interface for mysql :
The php-mysql package contains a dynamic shared object that will add
MySQL database support to PHP. MySQL is an object-relational database
management system. PHP is an HTML-embeddable scripting language. If
you need MySQL support for PHP applications, you will need to install
this package and the php or mod_php package.
But you have to install mysql to use it. MySQL is the main package and php-mysql is only a tool to let PHP work with MySQL

i understand, but i wanna have mysql 4.0.x
why should i install 3.x, if i already have 4.0?

It seems, that there are no mysql 4.0 packets on the repositories avalaible. But there are RPM files on the MySQL Page (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.0.html) But all the other tools will maybe not work with it. If you need 4.0 then install it skipping yum.

i have mysql 4.0.x from www.mysql.com already installed
now i wanna install php-mysql using yum. but it seems, that this library works with 3.0.x only :( is there a php-msql for 4.0.x?

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=php-mysql it is interesting, that it doesn't show for which MySQLversion it is, but only for which PHP version it is.
Maybe this one : http://rpmfind.rediris.es/rpm2html/immunix-7.0-contrib/php-mysql-4.0.6-1_imnx.i386.html
