I have Ubuntu running at home and Redhat is running on the server. 
Would this still work for me?  Do I need to install the same old
version of MySql on my home computer?

Are you referring to the rpm for Mysql?  I would just get the same
version as the server has?

So the new location will be where I extracted the RPM to?

So the new python module, the dpapi will be installed in my home
directory?  So when I import it from another script I would just
append my home directory to the sys.path first to use it?
