Ok. I figured it out and got it working. I am a newbie to MySql, but am an old MSSQL /Oracle guy. It looks like in MySql you can't have hyphens in the DB name. Once I removed it, I was able to finish the install.
As a note, trying to get MySql installed with this was actually quite painful compared to SQL or Oracle. You might want to create a MySql section in the installation guide to explain some of the setup issues that you can run into for MySql newbies because it took reading your forums all night to figure out the issue with having to also use the "root" user do to the grant SP permission problems with MySql.
