    Try looking at the permissions in the data directory. I had a similar problem because I ran the mysql_install_db script as root. Once I changed the owner and group of the files in the data direcotry to the mysql user and group, mysqld started just fine:
    chown mysql data/*
    chgrp mysql data/*
