Newbie - Mysql::Error in SayController#hello

Hi,

I'm trying to follow the agile book for hello world. I've run into
several problems and been able to resolve them up to:
Mysql::Error in SayController#hello
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I saw a posting that said if you create all the dbs the app needs then
it will work. Is this the correct solution? If so, how do I do it?

Thank you.

Is there a password for the root mysql user ?
