4.1 .sql file disaster recover

I have a disaster recovery need on a new server. I have to use 4.1 and i have a .sql file.

My question is how to restore the file. I see on the net in some places something like this..

mysql -h hostname -u username -pthepassword databasename < dumpfile.sql

Here’s an example:

mysql -h localhost -u root -p72aDufi8 db01 < thedumpfile.sql

However i dont know where to put the file for it to work or how to path the file.
should i be using the command line client?

Is there a gui tool for this?

Any help would be most appreciated.
