su - mysql operation not permitted


So I'm trying to set up mysql. I had the daemon selected for the initial slack install but whenever I boot it just dies saying "mysqld ended" and some time I believe too. I'm trying to follow the directions in /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld. All goes well up to the point where I have to change to the mysql user. But anyway heres exactly what happens:

#su - mysql
/dev/pts/2: Operation not permitted

No asking for a user password no nothing. Any Ideas of what to do? Would it be easier to fix the configuration or just remove the slack package and grab the newest from mysql's web site.

its normal to get that message.

Notice you you actually switch to the user evethough you get that message.
Code:
root@xushitop:~# su - mysql
No directory, logging in with HOME=/
/dev/pts/1: Operation not permitted
mysql@xushitop:/$
