ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket

i get this when i do '/etc/rc.d/rc.mysql start'

ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

ive had a look on google, and the problem for most people seems to be
permissions, but im running as root, and the socket doesn't exist. It
doesn't create the socket when it runs, because i tried putting mysql in
the root user group.

i do have a script that clears the /tmp on login, but i dont think that
would affect it

any idea's any1?

TIA
