Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you set the root password for mysql? Are you using localhost for your server name? What version of MySQL do you have? What Distro to you have?
I tend to think with forums you get what you put in. It seems that you are posting about 1 second after you have a problem which is rather annoying to say the least.
I would suggest taking a look at the documentation for chosen dist, try some things out and see how you get on. Have a search on this forum as im very sure someone has already had the same problem as you and will then find a solution.
When posting try to include as many details as possible as this will help people help you.
