I just started with Kevin's tutorial. After installing Mysql on Win 98 & PWS I wanted to change the root password as shown in the tutorial.

This is what happened.

C:\mysql\bin>mysqladmin -u root password "my password"

C:\MYSQL\BIN\MYSQLA~1.EXE: unable to change password; error: 'parse error near '
SQL_OPTION password='0f0dbe0300330c1b'' at line 1'


Any suggestions?
