If you do yum list mysql-server, what do you get back?
If you get back something that looks like this:
Installed Packages
mysql-server.x86_64                     5.0.77-3.el5
It is already installed.

Man, this is getting frustrating. In addition to all the other yum install
commands that tell me there's nothing to do, I add these:
yum install mysql-server.i386
yum install mysql-server
What gives?

You need to install mysql server software but rather than tell you what
to install, I will tell you how to find what you need to install...

yum search mysql

somewhere in the ouput of that command, there will be the server
software that you need to install.
