When I tried to start mysql server , it is saying :
 ./mysqld start
040416 13:42:11  Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use
040416 13:42:11  Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?
040416 13:42:11  Aborting

040416 13:42:11  ./mysqld: Shutdown Complete

I tried to stop the server but it is still giving the same message.
How can I start the server ???

A reboot would certainly take care of the problem, but a 'killall mysqld' should also take care of any currently running copy of MySQL.

OK,
in shell prompt use netstat -n -p | more, then find port 3306. In the same line, you can see process ID (-p switch). kill -TERM ID of process you found. This will force kill the process.
