Description of problem: 
I cannot find mysqld_safe or safe_mysqld on my RH ES 3 server.  I 
know MySQL is installed [rpm -q mysql returns mysql 3.23.58-1.9].  
But under /usr/bin (where the mysql tools seems to be located) I 
cannot find a way to start the server.  There are a bunch on mysqlx 
or mysql_x files but no mysqld or mysqladmin.  What am I doing wrong 
here?  Should MySQL server be ready to go out of the box?  Thought it

/usr/bin/safe_mysqld is part of the mysql-server package.  It sounds
to me like you didn't install that package.  In original RHEL3 this is
unsurprising because mysql-server is not part of the base OS --- you
need to install it from the "Extras" CD.  If you have one of the more
recent updates then I think it is in the base distribution. But in any
case you have only installed the client-side files, not the server.
