How to set up QMail for use without Plesk?

    I have rent dedicated server on 1and1 hosting (Fedora4, 64bit machine) with Plesk installed. Something went wrong and we have broken 'psa' database on MySQL. Now it is needed to set up QMail without using 'psa' database.
    I found nice installation package at http://www.qmailrocks.org/install_rh.htm, followed the instructions and finally got qmail up.

    But the problem is that qmail still is bound to PSA:

    [root@ ~]# telnet localhost 110
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Hello there. <xxxx.xxxxxxxxxx@localhost.localdomain>
    USER root@localhost
    +OK Password required.
    PASS xxxxxxxxx
    Unable to query parameter by query select val from misc where param='mysql41_compatible': Unknown column 'val' in 'field list'
    Unable to query parameter by query select val from misc where param='allow_short_pop3_names': Unknown column 'val' in 'field list'
    -ERR Login failed.
    Tried to find out, where are config files that bind qmail to that mysql database and found nothing.

    Any idea?
