DBI connect failed : Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'mysql'

I am using webmin tool for managing the mysql database installed in fedora 9 machine.I am able to login with mysql administrator username root and password null.But actually the password i assisgned for the mysql administrator was root .I did it in module configuration of webmin.But it is not taking effect.I am able to login with username root and password null(but not able to create database or any of the mysql commands).For anything i try i am getting the error message 

 DBI connect failed : Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'mysql'

I tried to uninstall mysql and reinstalling but nothing in favour.Please help me in this regard.Thanks

How to repeat:
I guess the problem could be with incompatibilty within the kernel and modules installed
