MySQL and Linux - dababase connection problem

When I installed MySQL (SuSE 9.0) and first started it, it
told me that I needed to set a password for
machine.domain. name. I tried following the directions, but
it would only setup a password for "localhost" .

Is this normal?

I am having problems with software connecting to the database.

Information about what you did, and what was the error message would
help people to answer.

I know it would be, but I don't have much. Here's what I did:

1. Installed MySQL and had it working.
2. Had some database problems I couldn't resolve. This
involved Posfix and Cyrus.
3. Finally gave up and uninstalled MySQL
4. Deleted the MySQL database files.
5. Reinstalled MySQL
6. Started MySQL
- Got a normal message to set the root user, and the
root yoda (my host name).
- root password set fine.
- root yoda password would not set. Got an error that
the database could not be accessed by the host.
- only "localhost" is valid for access

Is this normal? I'm having application problems of various
kinds, and the errors are application specific.

I'm not expecting Postfix/Cyrus support here. I know lots
of people have had problems getting them working with MySQL
though.

How did you set local and remote passwords? Did you use commandline
tools(if so, what were the commands you used) or some GUI tools?
