In addition to what Jonathan said, you might also experiment with the field order in a multi-column index. It can sometimes make a substantial difference.

Commencing with MySQL version 5.0.0 there is now some capability to use multiple indexes for a single instance of a table. See Index Merge Optimization http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Index_Merge_optimization.html . It's still useful to consider the old rule though, because it's often applicable.
