    On page 4 (at the bottom) of the CentOS 4.3 (64-bit) setup I run:

    mysqladmin -u root password XXXPWDXXX
    -no problem, but then run

    mysqladmin -h XXXHOSTNAMEXXX -u root password XXXPWDXXX
    -and get the folowing error:

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

    I'm a Linux newb, could someone point me in the right direction.

    Falko, thanks so much for your help. After playing around with it a bit I have gotten it working as desired.
