The service start and stop button does nothing at all.  I can click it and it it will say Stopped, but nothing actually happens as far as mysqld is concerned.  You can then repeat it to try to Start it again, and the same thing occurs.

MySQL is installed as a service on the system using the standard init.d setup that is done by the RPM from mysql.com using version 4.0.17.

It can be started and stopped through normal service means such as `mysqladmin shutdown` and `service mysql stop`.

How to repeat:
Run MySQL Administrator
Click Start/Stop button 

Suggested fix:
Possibly have some way to setup what the "Startup" and "Shutdown" commands are, if they can't be autodetected.
