With the CentOS version of mysql, its typically in /var/lib/mysql and
the mysql config file is /etc/my.cnf
after installing the mysql server with yum as ceejay explained, do...
# service mysqld start
# chkconfig mysqld on
(the first command starts the server, the second command configures the
system so the mysql server will automatically start when rebooted)
if the server is properly running, then you'll see at least one process
if you ...
# ps uww -C mysqld
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
mysql 3193 0.0 1.6 136920 16608 ? Sl Sep29 0:20
/usr/libexec/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql
