auto startup when system boots

I'm running Fedora and just installed mysql 4.0 earler last week in the normal default directory /usr/local/mysql. According to the install directions if I copy mysql.server to /etc/init.d and create a couple soft links the mysql server should start when the computer/os is booted. But it doesn't. I can start it manually ok and access it ok from mysqladmin program. I changed the root password from default mysql to something else. I looked in mysql.server to see if I needed to add the password there, but I don't see anything there either.

Anyone know what might be the problem?
