mysql command line: specify password

SkyHi @ Monday, March 01, 2010
password first letter contain # $ @ *

[root@home ]# mysql -u root -h ford -p#$49asdfasd
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

After some more testing i come to notice a few things. I reloaded the system and this time i did not do any updates. Also i noticed that the password for the the mysql does not like symbols like # $ @ *.
