Do you have it configured to start automatically?  (ntsysv at a terminal 
prompt as root on a RedHat system should work)

also, if you cd to /etc/init.d/
and enter   ./mysql start

you can start it manually... don't forget the "period slash" in front of 
the command (which I seem to do regularly :)
