Kirk,


I am somewhat confused by your question.

I must misunderstand what it is that you are trying to ask, because what it 
appears that you are asking makes no sense.  Once MySQL was installed as a 
service, why does it matter which account starts it?  Are you not the admin 
on the box?  Are you trying to start multiple instances of the MySQL service?

Logging off of the admin account will not stop a service on a Windows 2000 
box.  Even though you "log off the admin account", MySQL should still be 
running.

Or, when you say "started" do you mean "connect to the running server"?

What is the output of the following command on the server running MySQL?
netstat -a -p tcp


Respectfully,
Charles Q.
