red hat: mysql won't start

I'm running Red Hat Enterprise ES 4, and all of a sudden, my MySQL server won't start.  Where should I start looking for issues?  I'm clueless at this point.

Start by looking in the server error log ([hostname].err in your data directory).  Have you recently enabled SELinux?

go down in this page and look at the troubleshooting section...

* To restart mysql server
# /etc/init.d/mysqld restart

Tip: Redhat Linux also supports service command, which can be use to start, restart, stop any service:
# service mysqld start
# service mysqld stop
# service mysqld restart
(B) If you are using mysql on Debian Linux then use following command:

* To start mysql server:
# /etc/init.d/mysql start

* To stop mysql server:
# /etc/init.d/mysql stop

* To restart mysql server
# /etc/init.d/mysql restart

turns out it was out of disk space.  The bin logs filled it up.  I've turned logging off.  Thanks, guys!
