Cool mysqladmin password setup for Lamp w/Fedora

I am on the step.....

mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
mysqladmin -h server1.example.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

The second line I changed to include my server name....

mysqladmin -h server1.1millionbc.com -u root password yourrootsqlpassword

And I tried changing yourrootsqlpassword to my root password on both lines but still I get errors....

mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

and

for the second line the curser just sits there blinking with out the directoy prompt and if I hit enter the cuser moves to the next line and nothing else....

also the prompt says .....

[root@server1 ~]#

Can anyone help?
Thanks!

Default

maybe your mysql server has already a password. Are you able to connect to mysql with:

mysql -u root -p

and entering your root (shell) password?
