You just set the password to your root account to 'password'.
This is a common mistake: There is no space between the -p and the password.
Right after you have installed MySQL, there is no password so you run:
mysqladmin -u root password your?new!password
Then to connect to a server:
mysql -u root -pyour?new!password db
Note: No space after -p.
The manual has info if you need help resetting the password.
