Thanks for the reply. I've done that and now I have this:

[root at vernon0 rc3.d]# ls -l *mysql*
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           15 Aug 25 15:13 K12mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           15 Aug 25 15:13 S99mysql -> ../init.d/mysql
[root at vernon0 rc3.d]# ls -l /etc/init.d/mysql
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         1772 Apr 30 13:31 /etc/init.d/mysql

and I reboot, and mysql still doesn't start.

Any more suggestions?
