Try this:
$ mysql -u root -pPASSWORD mythconverg

Where PASSWORD is replaced by whatever you set the mysql password to.
Note that there is *no* space between the -p switch and the password text.

Note that the error message complained about root at *localhost*.  I think
it's a good sign that you need to follow that part of the HOWTO.

Good luck.
