read the documentation in the my.cnf sections

you can supply 
datadir=/usr/data/mysql (or whatever the data directory you choose)

make sure mysql has permissions on the new directory

a couple other things rely on this base directory too
your socket file
your pid file

You can set these too in your /etc/my.cnf

pid-file=/usr/data/mysql/mysql.pid
socket=/tmp/mysql.sock

or some such directories

Your err files will write to the datadir you specify
