mysqladmin is the binary you are looking for. Read MySQL's getting started/installation docs so you are sure there are passwords and everything is setup properly.

You may also see mysql start/stop scripts in init.d
#ls /etc/init.d | grep mysql
If so, you can start it
# /etc/init.d/mysql start
And at boot
# chkconfig --add mysql
That is, if mysql is the name of the init script.

In init.d as root
With "grep mysql" the terminal threw me in blank typing (without [root@localhost init.d]#).
After typing mysql start it said "bash: mysql: command not found".
What am I supposed to do?

This thread is like 7 months old... I'm guessing they figured it out or moved on somehow by now

But I'm somewhat lost, what is:
# /etc/init.d/ls
supposed to do?
