MYSQL setup

Hello, I'm trying to connnect and configure the root password for mysql after
a fresh install.
I've done the following

1. yum install
mysql-server mysql-administrator mysql mysql-gui-common php-mysql

2. service mysqld start

At this point from what I understand, the root mysql account should have no
password set so I can either

A. connect to the database with mysql -u root. with this I'm getting the
following error.

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using
password: NO)

or I can set the root password with

B. mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword' which yields the same error.
I've searched tirlessly to resolve this on my own but everything I read says
this only happens if you have set a password for root which I haven't done.
Any help would be greatly appreciated..Thanks
