When I first set up PHP my sessions did not work. What I eventually 
found was something to do with my php.ini file on how it deals with 
sessions (ie. where they save them, etc)

This is some stuff from my php.ini file which i found useful (and made 
it work, I think)

register_globals = true
session.save_path = /tmp
session.use_trans_sid = 1
session.auto_start = 1

Some of it might not be the solution but I think the session.save_path 
directive is what makes it work. For better definition of what these 
things do, look in the php manual (Chapter 3. Configuration).

Hope this helps,
