Ya you must be right. I have'nt configured the file /etc/my.cnf.I saw the
file and found that the value of user= was set to mysql. Where as in the
sql.conf file  I pointed out the following
Login = "root"
Password = "password".But I don't know how to configure mysql.Does any one
have a link to a good tutorial.As I am a newbie in the world of mysql

this isnt a FreeRADIUS problem at this point - the above error message is a
'mysql cannot talk to mysql server'.  check that 

1) mysql is running
2) mysql is configured to allow your host to talk to it
3) mysql is configured to allow root account to talk to it - and that the
password is correct
4) firewall issues - check that you arent blocking mysql conversations in
some wierd way
