This question is real basic -- sorry.

I installed the newest version of MySQL on Mac OSX10.3.6, following the book's instructions, but when I type--
<me>:/usr/local/mysql/bin chris$ mysql -u root mysql

It gives me--
-bash: mysql: command not found

mysql is in that directory, and mysqld seems to be running, so why isn't it running the command? Also, what is the difference between mysqld and mysql?

Thanks a lot for any help,
