Is the MySql server running? No longer familiar with RH and clones, so can't tell you how to start it.

If the server is not running, that is the obvious response that the client gives you (as it can't connect). So get your server running (as I said, I don't know how as I'm not familiar with your distro) and try again to connect.

Note:
There are two programs to mysql. mysqld is the actual server and needs to be started first; mysql is the 'standard' client that can be used to communicate with the server (once the server is running).
