installed mysql-4.0.15-win into default folder of c:\mysql and have managed to get the server running as a service within Windows 2000 Pro. As soon as i attempt to run the admin tool or install privilage tables i get a "cannot connect to server at 'localhost' failed. "Can't connect to mySQL server on 'localhost' 10060>.
Have setup a hosts file on local machine (127.0.0.1) but error still occurs.
Also, how do i run the "mysql_install_db" script file to get the privilige tables setup?
