in short, assuming that both the variables are not integers (i.e. 2 is equal to 0002) you should use === if you want '002' to not equal '2'.
try the following lines of code:
var_dump(2 === 002); var_dump('2' === '002'); var_dump('2' == '002'); var_dump(2 == 002); var_dump(2 == '002');
....amazing what a bit of experimentation can teach you....

this is not a problem, its the documented behaviour, actually it's the foundation of what makes php so easy to use - namely automatic typecasting and dynamic types (I am probably not explaining that too well).
read the manual to understand more:
BTW: this is not a DB question. ;-)
