Lets do this in console, okay. Do a rpm -q MySQL ..... do you see the
package installed? If the package is there and it was stalling lets
reinstall it. First, rpm -e MySQL-3.22.21-1
Then, rpm -ivh MySQL-3.22.21-1.i386.rpm to install, you should not get
errors. BTW, you need MySQL-client-3.22.21-1.i386.rpm as well or nothing
will work. rpm -ivh MySQL-client-3.22.21-1.i386.rpm  as well.
If the package was never installed in the first place when you did 
rpm -q MySQL, just install both those rpm's..... this will start the
mysqld daemon and you ready to make stuff :P
