Adding mysqld as a service in GUI Redhat 3

I have installed RedHat 3 and after that installed Mysql.
In Redhat 3 one has a GUI interface for the services.

After installing mysql i need to manually go into the command promt and start the service by typing mysqld.
Is there anyway i can add mysqld as one of the options in the service menu so that i have a GUI representation of the process- whether it is running or not.

There is a tool called services,

in the command line type
and type in the password for root when it prompts you. It allows you to load/unload running services and also to configure which services you need to load at boot-up.

Note: No spaces between the dashes. It is one command.

Hi Harishankar,
thanks for the tip.
