Let me make a guess or two here.  You're a slackware user using the mysql 
daemon and trying to make it work.  If this is correct so far, give it up 
it can't be done.  You need the mysql binary distribution off of the mysql 
home page and you need to install that correctly.  Once that is done, 
everything works as in the mysql manual.  Redhat has mysql able to start 
up if you turn it on in the services and did mysql much better than 
slackware.  With redhat once you reboot with mysql starting up and you're 
root, if you type mysql and hit enter at the prompt you're going to get an 
mysql session going.  Let's just say; been there, done all of that, and 
got the blasted T-shirt!
