Also I looked into /var/lib/mysql   (shouldn't that be /var/log on Linux/RPMS so
that they get rotated and such?)
there were a pant load of these:

mysqld ended on  Wed Apr 28 22:25:04 PDT 1999
mysqld started on  Wed Apr 28 22:26:12 PDT 1999
990428 22:26:12  Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
990428 22:26:12  Do you already have another mysqld server running on socket:
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock ?
990428 22:26:12  Aborting

mysqld ended on  Wed Apr 28 22:26:12 PDT 1999
mysqld started on  Wed Apr 28 22:35:19 PDT 1999
990428 22:35:19  Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
990428 22:35:19  Do you already have another mysqld server running on socket:
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock ?

mysqld ended on  Wed Apr 28 22:35:19 PDT 1999

there is no /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock file.

I'm running this as root too, so there should be no permission problem.
