MySQL client on RHEL

I have a statistical application running on RHEL 6.2. One of the data source is a MySQL 5.1 DB running on a WIN platform. I need to make ODBC or MySQL connection to retrieve data.

What I did:
I have checked yum and selected the appropriate unixOdbc and installed w/o problem.

downloaded MySQL yum repository, installed using yum, updated it, then used it to install odbc/connector.

I only see a 0 size odbc.ini in /etc and i am not sure where to look for the odbc/connector.

  unixODBC.x86_64 0:2.2.14-14.el6

  mysql-connector-odbc.x86_64 0:5.3.4-1.el6

I know that setting up environment variables is the next part and setting up DSN (odbc.ini) but I am not sure where to look (I have run searches using find cmds but not getting anything back)

Any insight is appreciated.

This is the yum list installed output so this is reporting mysql components were installed:

mysql.x86_64                     5.1.69-1.el6_4        @rhel-x86_64-server-6.4.z
mysql-community-release.noarch   el6-5                 @/mysql-community-release-el6-5.noarch
mysql-connector-odbc.x86_64      5.3.4-1.el6           @mysql-connectors-community
mysql-libs.x86_64                5.1.69-1.el6_4        @rhel-x86_64-server-6.4.z
mysql-server.x86_64              5.1.69-1.el6_4        @rhel-x86_64-server-6.4.z
