    I have done both this setup and have done Mandriva 2005 dozens of times with no problems. I have now reformatted the drives a half dozen times, and reinstalled fresh and I keep getting the same results. When I do:

    mysqladmin -u root password (my password here)

    it returns, with no error. Then I do this:

    mysqladmin -h -u root password (my password here)

    I get this as a result:

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

    Like I said, I have used these tutorials as guides dozens of times with no problems, this time, I get the same thing over and over. What am I doing wrong?
