Default Problem installing ISPConfig, then with MySQL...

Hello, I am having a similar problem with installing ISPConfig...

After entering my MySQL server 'localhost', user 'root', and password 'mypassword', I got booted from the install.

I followed some instruction to change my root password to blank and ran into trouble with the MySQL installation. I landed up uninstalling MySQL and reinstalled it using the instructions from , which is how I installed MySQL in the first place. Now when I get to the point where I start the MySQL service, i get:
[root@server1 ~]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start
chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user
chown: `mysql:mysql': invalid user
Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL:                                            [FAILED]
I must have lost something during the uninstall and I am unsure what it was...

I tried adding the mysql user by:
[root@server1 ~]# useradd -d /dev/null -s /bin/false mysql luck still.

Would anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Then I can get back to my original problem with the ISPConfig problem.

I am a newbie, so bare with me. I have setup everything as detailed from , and I am running FC4.

Any help is greatly appreciated...thanks!
