Cannot connect to MySQL at install time linux

I am trying to install Alfresco 1.2 on a hosted linux VPS environment.  I am installing it via console.

MySQL 4.1 is set up and running fine, and I entered the password for the root user in MySQL.  When I entered the port information, I get:

Please enter the port for your MySQL database.

MySQL database Port [3306]:

Warning: Unable to bind to the given port number. Please select another one.

Is the installer assuming that you must be root in order to install Alfresco?  In my VPS I cannot be "real" root.  I have also enabled remote connection to the database, but that doesn't seem to help.

Any help to get me over this hump is greatly appreciated; I really don't look forward to building it from src.
