Hi Kevin

If the ./scripts/mysql_install_db script was successful, then you should have a directory
/usr/local/var/mysql with the following
files in it:
user.frm, user.isd, user.ism
db.frm, db.isd, db.ism
host.frm, host.isd, host,ism
tables_priv.frm, tables_priv.isd, tables_priv.ism
columns_priv.frm, columns_priv.isd, columns_priv.ism

The three mysqld's are one process and two threads running. This is o.k.

I assume you tried to connect from the machine running mysql.
Which version of mysqldump do you use?
Did you use the correct port?
Can you connect by giving IP address as host?
