Write a migration tutorial and post it to the major web development 
sites (webmonkey, sitepoint.com, devshed.com, phpbuilder.com, etc). 
That's where PHP users are most-influenced.  These tutorials have 
enabled so many people to get into server-side scripting, and most of 
the tutorials use MySQL.  (I speak as a former full-time PHP programmer 
who did use MySQL for PHP app development, because that's how I learned it.)

And, to avoid the connotation of bias, whomever writes such a migration 
tutorial might want to suggest using the PEAR:DB abstraction layer to 
avoid migration hassles in the future.  http://pear.php.net/
