    MySQL configuration error

    I am totally new to MySQL and I am trying to get MySQL set up on my Windows server.
    The server is running Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition and IIS 6.0

    I have installed MySQL successfuly but run into problems when configuring it. I get all the way to the Start Server page and click execute.
    When I do this I get a tick in the Prepare COnfig and Write Config File boxes but then when it tries to start the server it comes up with the error:
    'Could not start the service MySQL'

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this.

    Look for a file with a .err extension in your MySQL installation's data directory (it should be named after the machine it's running on). There may be more information on the problem there.
