FC3 and MySQL, did it install or not?

I'm a bit of a newb so please bear with me:
I selected the mysql package when I installed FC3 (as server). I then ran
"yum update" and just let it update everything. That's a good thing, right?
Anyway, so far, so good: named/bind is working well (after a week of
reading!), apache and php are running too. It was a nice surprise when php
worked 'out of the box'!
But I can't start mysqld!
Using updatedb and locate do not find the mysqld file on the system.
"yum info mysql" reports:
Name : mysql
Arch : i386
Size : 5.2 M
Repo : installed
Summary: MySQL client programs and shared library.
"rpm -q mysql" reports:
"rpm -i /var/cache/yum/updates-released/packages/mysql-3.23.58-14.i386.rpm"
package mysql-3.23.58-14 is already installed
running "mysql_install_db" from /usr/bin reports:
Didn't find /usr/libexec/mysqld
You should do a 'make install' before executing this script
(Yeah, I can't find mysqld either!)
Do I need to do a 'make install'? What directory should that be done in? I
can't really tell where mysql is installed. I'm confused because I thought
installing the rpm (from anaconda and/or yum) would eliminate that step. So
I'm kinda stuck now... hate to muck up an otherwise good install of FC3.
Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated!
