FreeBSD 5.2.1 startup issue after adding MySQL daemon fireup line in /etc/rc.conf

I have a machine that worked fine a couple of hours ago.
After installing MySQL everything went OK and I have been able to shutdown and restart it several times.
After FreeBSD startup, I had to manually launch the following command to manually launch the MySQL server daoemon:
shell#support-files/mysql.server -u root -p start 
I expected the computer to prompt for MySQL admin password after OS startup but it just fails and I cannot anymore gain access to system.
Does anyone have a workaround for this?
