installation help

I am having some problems during installation. I'm using MySQL 4.0 and PHP 4.3.

I receive the following error when I click on the Install phpMyFAQ button:
Error: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)

I have been able to create,edit and delete databases recently without a problem. I'm sure this stems from something I did during installation of mysql but I do not recall any password. Any ideas on how to correct this?

Hi ;)

ich bei dem Installer kein pw für die DB gesetzt. Da ja local der Username auf root steht. Wenn ich nun PHPFaq installieren will, kommt
Error: There's no database password input.
Hat das was mit dem DB-pw zutun ? Wenn ja, wie kann ich es umgehen ?
