I installed MySql via Yast in 10.3. After I start up the machine mysql isn't running and when I try to start it I get this error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

If I reinstall MySQL and set up the root password it works until I log back in.

I don't really need it running every time I start my machine. How do I manually start it and if I want force it to run on boot? The Mysql entry on this site assumes that by installing through yast and setting the password means that all is well so there is no other information.
