There are several reasons why Mysql don't start. Check whether /var/lib/mysql directory permissions 751 and is owned by 'mysql' user. Make sure you have no invalid argument in /etc/my.cnf file (or just rename the file for the time being). /tmp permissions should be 1777 as the symlink of mysql.sock is created under it. You can then try starting the mysql service.

There is probably a wrapper script to safely start mysql. If your distro uses chkconfig, use that to enable the msql service for your runlevel.
