Usually a brand new installation of MySQL would have installed a default set of privilege tables that grants root access without password. Since this doesn't work for you, it could mean you already have a pre-existing set of MySQL data on your system?

You could zap out your existing privilege tables and recreate them from scratch using the mysql_create_system_tables command... check docs for details :)
