Newbie: MySql Setup on WINXP Profession SP2

I am trying to setup MySql according to my school book "PHP fast&easy web development" on a WinXP Professional SP2 system.

Everytime I try to create a database this message below comes up. If you can please give me any assistance, I would greatly appreciate it.

mysqladmin: CREATE DATABASE failed; error: 'Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'testDB''

The instructions were to go to the c:\mysql\bin directory. First type in "mysqld-opt" and return to the prompt. Then the second instructions were to type in "mysqladmin create testDB". According to the WinMySQLadmin 1.4 it seems everything is running.
