PHP 5.0 doesn't come with mysql support... You have to get the libraries
yourself... I think u can get them from

php_mysql is in the extensions directory of the latest downloads, just uncomment it in the php.ini file.

Might have to pay? I haven't totally figure out the implications of the
no mysql in PHP 5.0 yet, but I know its not there.

No charge for it in PHP, it's the changes to the mysql licence that cause the problem. Mysql is not necessarily free for commercial use, and THAT aspect is now being pressed by mysql.

Try Firebird - works great with PHP, and many of the add on database packages, and is totally free.
