    The apt-get install did get the mysql packages and installed them 
properly. But my old book is not correct I think for this version 5. 
When I try to get the version, or anything else with mysqladmin it does 

karl at karl-desktop:~$ mysqladmin -p secret version
Enter password:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'karl'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
karl at karl-desktop:~$

    What have I done wrong? How do I get the mysql prompt?
