Getting MySQL runningg

I want to get mySQL up and running on my web server. It is running OS X Server 10.1. The good news is it include mySQL out of the box. The bad news is it is not in running order. Does anyone know how to "activate" it, fix it or otherwise make it work. Downloading and reinstalling would only be a very last resort. Keep in mind I'm not very good with unixey things (thats why I own a macintosh Smilie ) But please help me out anyway.
