I find that postgres with OOo Base works quite nicely.  I believe knoda works 
well with postgres as well.  I prefer PostgreSQL to MySQL for pretty much 
everything.  It's a more fully featured database with stored procedure 
support in various language including PL/pgSQL which is similar to PL/SQL.  
PostgreSQL also supports multiple schemas which can interact with one 

MySQL works too, I just suppose I've got more love for PostgreSQL :)
