Error after installing mysql on nt 4.0 server

After installing mysql on nt4.0 server I get and error trying to start the mysql service (error 1067 could not start the mysql service, the process terminated unexpectedly

RE: Error after installing mysql on nt 4.0 server

I had the same thing happen when I tried to install.
My first mistake was trying the non-service version.
My second was installing the service, and not starting it under the control panel!  Unfortunately, I don't remember at what point I got your error, but I'm up and working now.

To get it to work, I did:
mysqld --install

Then went into the control panel to start the service.  
Started it.

Good luck.
