I'm a newb, ohkay.. =]
I just installed mysql on my system and i was setting up the passwords when i did something wrong.
I think it happened when i was trying to delete the anonymous users accounts.. (high security. i don't want anynomous users)
Well everytime i try to login through DOS with "root" and my password, i get this:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:>net start mysql
The MySQL service is starting.
The MySQL service was started successfully.

C:> c:\mysql\bin\mysql -u root -p abcdef
Enter password: ********
ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'abcdef'

my password is "abcdef". How come i can't login with it? I even tried the thing if you "forgot" your password, you can like reset it.. And i did. i reset it to "abc" and i still couldn't login with it.
