In case this helps anyone, i ran
find . -name 'my*\.cnf'

This showed me the locations of the conf files, reading them told me  
where to put them.

Thanks to everyone for the help, I have Apache2, MySql5 and php5  
running nice now.

I will probably be back wondering about updates when new versions are  
released :)
