Mysql5 password reset

I recently forgot my mysql password. When following the instructions on to reset it I was able to stop the mysqld daemon through
launchctl, but when I started mysqld manually with the skip grant tables
 option it complained about being unable to lock files and became a
runaway process that did not respond to keyboard input.
Thank you,
