I would like to get the first 5 random entries out of my "mysql" database,
what would be the correct SELECT option?

I adjusted this line

$result = mysql_db_query ("$DBName","select * from Contacts LIMIT 0,5 ");
which works correctly. :)

$result = mysql_db_query ("$DBName","select * from Contacts order by rand()
LIMIT 5 ");
Doesn't work at all. :(

Can anyone through any light on this subject.
