Default LAMP System Fedora Core 6 MySQL start error

I was following the tutorial by Falko A LAMP System With Fedora Core 6 and I get to paragraph 9 MySQL (5.0) and try to start mysqld as follows:

[root@aimsafe ~]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start
Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: [FAILED]

I have google for days but still don't know what to do. I am newbie. I think
I am root, I only have root user as far as I know. I don't know where to
find the <hostname>.err log. or the sqld data directory. I used locate command ie locate / -name mysql*.err but nothing.

Any suggestions appreciated.
