Thanks for your reply, everyone ! It turns out that when Apache 2 was installed with Redhat 9, the mod auth_mysql library was not installed.
I followed everyone's advice and still did not get an error log - oddly enough. Well, in trying to "cleanly" remove Apache 2, in order to work with 1.3.x, for the sake of working with something a little better documented... Things got messy. Time to wipe and re-install, only because I donšt want to spend more time on this than I already have - troubleshooting instead of working with PHP and MySQL. Sorry for the Off-Topic material, but you deserved a reply.
