Post Linux x86 RPM install instructions say:

/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h MYHOST password 'new-password'

...but mysqladmin program is no where to be found on the system.

How to repeat:
Follow post-install instructions:

/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h MYHOST password 'new-password'

Suggested fix:
mysqladmin should be placed in /usr/bin

Are you installed the RPM for clients programs, besides the
server ?

If you installed only the server RPM, you should install the
client RPM as well.  mysqladmin is a client program.

I am terribly sorry for wasting your time! I thought mysqladmin came with the server. I have downloaded and installed the client tools and the issue is resolved.
