cacti w/server 2003

I am new to cacti. I am sure that it is much easier to do with Linux, but I want to drive myself crazy so I am trying to get it to run on Windows.
I have run into some problems trying to install Cacti with Windows. So far I have installed:

php 5.0.5
Apache/2.0.55 (Win32)
MySQL Administrator 1.1
MySQL Server 5.0
net-snmp version 5.1.3
My cactid.conf file
DB_Database cacti
DB_User root
DB_Pass cactiuser

My problem is running cactid from command line.
This is the output I get.

CACTID: Using cactid config file [cactid.conf]
CACTID: MYSQL: Connection Failed: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I am stuck, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Not familiar with cacti.

Make sure you use an user account that has proper access. Try using your admin account at first.. and if that works, create an account that is strictly for SQL/Cacti support.
