Thanks for replying Chuck, you're right but now I'm getting the
following error:
031201 20:00:47  mysqld started
Warning: Ignoring user change to 'mburke' because the user was set to
'mburke' earlier on the command line
031201 20:00:49  InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file
InnoDB: See for installation help.
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to
InnoDB: the directory.
InnoDB: File name ./ibdata1
InnoDB: File operation call: 'open'.
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.
031201 20:00:49  mysqld ended
It seems strange since the only thing I've done is copy my.cnf to /etc.
