Problems with MySQL when installing phpBB

i am trying to install phpBB on my server. I can get the install page up and it asks for my database information. I am under the impression that i must setup a SQL database to make this run. I have MySQL and PHP installed on my Fedora box. How and where do i setup a mysql db for phpBB to work.

make sure that mysql is running in your services.
then set up a password for mysql:
# mysql -u root password [newpassword]
then create a database:
# mysqladmin -u root -p[yourmysqlpassword] create [dbname]

then use the details during installation.
