MySQL and error 1044

P: n/a
I am new to MySQL and I have having a problem creating databases.
First some preliminaries...

Operating System - Windows XP Professional
MySQL Version - 4.0.20a-debug
Installed in "Services" to automatically start

I don't know if there's anything else need, if there is please let me
know. Regardless, on to my problem.

I have installed MySQL as described in the instruction but when I use
the following query to create a database called "working"


I recieve the following error:

ERROR 1044: Access denied for user: '@localhost` to database


According to the manual this is an error MySQL cannot resolve the
hostname properly and suggests that creating a file called 'hosts'
with the following information will solve the problem: localhost

Problem is it didn't solve the problem. Does anyone have any input on
how to get past this error? Where is this file supposed to be located
and what, if any, extension it should use?

In an intelligent dialog different does
not mean opposite.
