Probably the embedded mysql engine is best for what you're describing. It means you can access MySQL databases, but you don't have to run a MySQL Server service.

See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/libmysqld.html

Another option is to use SQLite, which has nothing to do with MySQL, it's made by other people and it's a separate product. Its default usage is like that of MySQL's embedded engine. I suggest it because it's also open-source.

See http://www.sqlite.org/
