mysql kufuffle


I'm having a hard time getting mysql setup on my redhat system. The 
issue has to do with a not quite properly setup system in which the 
hostname is not set to the fully qualified domain name of the system. 
So, when mysql starts up for the first time, through the 
/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld script, the database is inititlaized, and the 
host is defined with the non-fqdn string. But when I go to set the root 
password using the command 

mysqladmin -u root -h basement00 password BlAa 

it complains that root does not have access from the host and it spits 
out the fully qualified domain name. It looks like I need to fix up 
something within the db tables so that it recognizes my host, using the 
fqdn string. Any ideas on this? 

thanks in advance. 

Cheers. Steve.
