Unable to start MySQL Server5.0 on Windows Vista

I installed MySQL Server 5.0 on my new Windows Vista PC. I was able to successfully configure and start the server the first two times. Instead of doing the proper shutdown, I accidentally closed the MySQL Command Line Client. Now, I am not able to start the server again. Could somebody please suggest me on how to start the MySQL Server again. I tried doing this ---went to c:\ProgramFiles\MYSQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin and clicked on mysqladmin. A Window comes and disappears on me. When I click on mysql under bin---a window comes and disappears on me. Need Help please

Please go to the `Task manager` and see if there is a process `mysqld.exe` already running.

Go to `Administrative Tools`/`Services` in the start menu. Do you have a `MySQL Server` service in there? If yes, can you start it from there?

Go to `Command Prompt` and navigate to the `/bin` folder. Try issuing the `mysqld.exe` command from there and let me know which error exactly is it reporting.
