OES SP2 (NetWare)
MySQL 4.0.2

The command:

mysqladmin -u root password [new password]

fails with:

sys:/mysql/bin/mysqladmin.nlm: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'

Bottom-line is I'm trying to find or reset my admin's password for the
database so one of my colleagues can connect to it remotely. We're trying
to tie-in eGuide to Nsure Audit via MySQL.
