Why doesn't MySQL start unless InstantRails does first?

I am grateful for anyone that could explain to me why I cannot start
MySQL unless InstantRails (1.5) has started first.
InstantRails seems to have create a ‘root’ user with NO password. I
cannot log in with this into MySQL Query Browser of MySQL Administrator.
If I startup InstantRails, I can.
I’m not dying or anything about this behaviour as I can always start
InstantRails. I hope to be a professional in this business someday, and
view this question as simply one rung on the latter.
I would appreciate an email as I wouldn’t want to miss this very
important information.
Thank you,

Because under InstantRails, MySQL is not configured to run as a service.
When you start IR it starts up it’s mysql server along with it’s apache
server. When you exit IR, those applications are stopped as well. This
is
suitable for development, as you don’t have the overhead of these apps
running in the background when you aren’t using them.
