Just installed Ruby and rails as per onlamp.com Trying to work through the tutorial Downloaded and installed mysql Downloaded and installed MySqlFront No problems so far. SQL server started Trying to connect to localhost as root (no password) just like the instructions say. My Windows XP box times out waiting for connection. I've searched the FAQ and MySql Ref Man but can't find anything that will tell me what I'm doing wrong. I've uninstalled and reinstalled just to make sure that I'm doing all the right steps in the proper order.

More helpfully, I'd suggest trying the Rails mailing list, since they're going to be a lot more familiar with installation problems. http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails matthew smillie.
