MySQL runs with root rights - MySQL

Hello. I just installed MySQL (server) on my computer. ( My opsys is SuSE 9.3 ) My problem is that it starts automatically on boot up as a task of root... I know it's not the best configuration, so I would like to modify it so it'd be started under the name of a user with limited rights. Is it possible to modify its settings? If so, can you tell me how? Thanks for your time to read this. I'd be very grateful if anybody could help me....

    The procedure for changing the uid of the MySQL daemon is doented in
    the MySQL doentation. It's part of the chapter on security:
