Default MySQL problem on install

The install keeps stopping just after choosing the installation mode.

It says that MySQl is not started and stops.

However just before I started the setup process I started all the programs including mysql.

I did notice though that mysql started fine using /etc/init.d/mysqld start
though restart would not work using /etc/init.d/mysqld resart
.. it would stop but not start - it timed out.
I could start it again using /etc/init.d/mysqld start though.

What could be the problem?

I am using Mandrake and followed the setup instructions for the perfect setup.
