[thelist] Mysql on Jaguar

I have downloaded mysql onto my iMac ( Distrib 3.23.55, for apple-darwin6.3)
from Marc Liyanage's website.
I can create tables, enter data and query the database; but only using the
test database.
I've tried creating a new database but I get:
 ERROR 1044: Access denied for user: '@localhost'...
I also get:
 ./bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'username at localhost' (Using password: YES)'

I have O'Reilly's 'Web Database Applications' and I've checked out the mysql
website but I can't make head nor tail of the password protection, whatever
I copy from either source fails.

Can anyone give me any pointers as to what is happening bearing in mind I'm
not very familiar with Unix
