How do I connect using Cocoa MySQL?

I have installed Cocoa MySQL for MAC and I need some tips on how to connect to my localhost. I am using MAMP as my developing tool. I am not sure what to place in these fields to connect?

Any ideas for this newbie would be greatly appreciated!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
