Well, you've mentioned your problem right here.  'or die (
"saysomethinghere" );'.  Die meaing just that. "Die".  Don't process
anything further.

Try something like:

$db = mysql_connect("X", "Y", "Z");
$db_error = mysql_errno();
if ($db_error <> 0) {
    print "Error conencting to the database";
    $db_error = 1;
} else {
    # Do the rest of your MySQL Queries etc. here
    # or do checks to make sure $db_error is 0 prior
    # to doing any...

hope this helps, or atleast points you in the right direction for
