Print out your SQL queries when debugging. Make sure they look correct. (Not
an issue in your case, though, since you're not inserting any variables into
the SQL.)

Also, use mysql_error() in conjunction with mysql_query().

$rs = msyql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

or example. Wrapping your sql queries in a simple abstraction layer will
make debugging easier, too. You could use a simple db_query($sql) function
call and have error checking built into the function and handle all queries
the same.
