ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)



After installing Redhat 3 Enterprise Edition I made sure MySQL was part
of the install.

When I tried to start MySQL I got the following error:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

The /var/lib/mysql directory did not exist.  Even after creating the
folder, as suggested by this mailing list archives, it didn't help.  The
folder permissions are root.root.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MySQL from the Redhat RPMs and I
still got the error.  I even read previous e-mails and found little
help.  

Any suggestions on what to do to make this work?  I am at a loss.


The following packages are installed:

[root W-pai-2077 mysql]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
