Please Help With MySql Problem On Linux

Hi everyone, hoepfully someone can help me with this problem, as I am
new to Linux and not so sure how to troubleshoot this problem. I
installed MySQL 4.1.21 on Fedora Core two without receiving any errors,
and when I do

# service mysql start

it starts successfully. However, when trying to get to a mysqlprompt.
this happens:

[root@member1 root]# /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql: error while loading shared libraries:
libmysqlclient.so.14: cannot open shared object file: No such file or

I did a search for the "missing" file and found libmysqlclient.so.14
is in the /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql directory; although it is a "link
to application/x-sharedlib", if that matters. In the same directory I
have a similar file name, but it is of type "application x-sharedlib"
and called libmysqlclient.so.14.0.0

Any help would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!
