When you try to start it up, do you see any messages in
/var/log/messages or /var/log/mysqld.log?

What about /var/log/secure or /var/log/setroubleshoot/setroubleshootd.log

One possibility is that MySQL is trying to start before something else
is ready.  You can try renaming the symlink to have a higher number in
it, so it will start later.  Ask me if you don't understand what I mena

Please do:
find /etc/rc.d -name '*mysqld' -ls
And post the output.
