I have a fresh install of Slackware 9.1. Installed Mysql with the install of
the OS. When attempting to start mysqld, I receive an error stating it can
not connect to /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. When I searched for mysql.sock, it
is not on the system. How do I go about creating mysql.sock?


the mysqld _service_ is not running. try to start that service.
i don't exactly know how this is done w/ slackware but probably like this:

% /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start

for starting mysqld at boot add a symlink into /etc/init.d/rc.d/rcX.d, that 
points to the mysqld-startscript mentioned above

% cd /etc/init.d/rc.d/rcX.d
% ln -s ../init.d/mysqld SYYmysqld

where X is the runlevel you want mysql to be started automatically and YY is a 
number that indicates between wich other startscripts in the current runlevel-
configuration the mysqld should be started, e.g. S99mysqld...
