When you started the mysql server as detailed in the previous message,
did it give you any errors? If it did, you may want to try it as:

/etc/init.d/mysqld start

You may also want to have the mysql server run at boot-up so you don't
have to manually start it. As root, do:

/sbin/chkconfig mysqld on

This should get you up and running as long as MySQL is installed properly.
