[SLUG] mysql restore

 Hi all,

I'm doing a mysql restore to a new server that has a mysql database on it. As in just installed mysql.

show databases shows two databases "mysql" and "information_schema".

My backups from a previous server has many db's including two called mysql and information_schema.

Do I have to drop the new server's mysql and information_schema databases and reload my own or are these not used or needed by mysql or what are they for?

Any clues appreciated.
