I installed plesk(first mistake at least here..<G>) and it got in my way 
in some area more than it helped.  The first thing it did was deny root 
access to mysqld and i could not find the username and password for 
adding another database.  I removed plesk and mysql.  when i used yum to 
reinstall mysql i was then told root @ localhost was denied.  I removed 
mysql again and nuked all of the mysql files i could find that were left 
behind.  Now when i reinstall it won't even start.  Any ideas?

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
