That makes me think OP did a yum install mysql instead of a yum group
install. Per the output in my previous post, default packages for the
*group* include mysql-server. If my assumption is correct, he'll
probably hit more stumbling blocks, depending on what he's doing
ultimately, as other parts of a default install will likely be missing
too. Might be better to unstall (that *ought* to be a valid word, huh?
Would save typing.  :-) and do a group install to get a good starting
point.
