[CentOS] Blew away MySQL

Unfortunately, I blew MySQL away by replacing the MySQL control tables 
with others and not making a copy of the folder.

My data is backed up, so that is not a problem, but I cannot reinstall 
MySQL and create the mysql directory with the control tables (e.g. user, 
db, host).  I have run "yum remove mysql" and "yum install mysql" and 
"yum install mysql-server" and the control files are not recreated.

Any suggestions?
