mysqladmin -u <user> -p create my_phpbbdb
Replace <user> with the user you connect to MySQL as.

Well for starters MySQL needs to be running before you can create tables or do anything of use with it.
Most distributions provide an init script to start MySQL. Try /etc/init.d/mysql start (as root) if the mysql script exists in /etc/init.d. Many distributions also have a control panel applet or a separate tool for managing system services, where you can define what services should be started.
