I did the same recently and it was creating the directory in my home  
folder but the mysql.txt defaults to localhost it then sends out a  
bunch of connects and waits for a response thus the hang. Nigel led  
me to believe that if I was patient it would pop up with the setup  
In short my problem was the mysql.txt, but if you don't have the  
folder you won't have that and it is another problem.
