Question mysqladmin root user setup isn't working - [using mysql 5.1] on Chrunchbang 11

Hello I am installing a MySQL I am currently using Chrunchbang 11 "Waldorf". The verson of mySQL i am using is 5.1.

I first installed both mysql packages:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.1 mysql-client-5.1
Then after installing both client && server, I next whent ahead and ran:
sudo mysql_install_db
Now here is where the issue arrise. when I set up root user for MySQL:
cbattle4654@Kujaku-Ou:~$ sudo mysqladmin -u root password '01Arcanedb'
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
Now I know I can't go any further than this. Is there a certain script that I need to configure? I have the mysqld running, I even restarted the deamon to make sure that it needed to be restarted berore I can set up a root user for MySQL. Is there a step I could be missing? Could someone point me in the right direction please?

~ Thanks.
