MySQL service does not start

P: 1
I am unable to start mysql service.
I have installed RHEL 6 properly httpd is running fine, but when I try to start the mysql service it shows this service is dead and when the mysql command is fired following error gets displayed:

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

What should I do???

This is really urgent......
