I'm using 4.0.0.  I found a solution that worked:

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT eta.id) AS count
FROM demo_event_time_assoc eta,
         demo_events e,
         demo_event_subcategory_assoc esa,
         demo_zip_codes z
WHERE eta.event_id=e.id
         AND esa.event_id=e.id
         AND z.zip=e.zip
         AND e.active=1
         AND esa.subcategory_id IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
         AND (
         (eta.start_timestamp >= 1162281600 AND eta.start_timestamp <=
1162368000)
          OR
         (eta.end_timestamp < 1162281600 AND eta.end_timestamp > 
1162285200))


Also, there is a feature in MySQL 4.0.0 and higher where you can add
'SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS' to your query and run it *with the LIMIT clause* then
you simply run another query for FOUND_ROWS() immediately after and MySQL
will return the total number of rows that *would be returned without the
limit clause*.

like this:

SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS e.id, e.title, e.subheading, eta.start_timestamp,
eta.end_timestamp, e.zip, e.bold, e.outline, e.color, e.subheading,
COUNT(esa.id) AS subcat_count
FROM demo_event_time_assoc eta,
demo_events e,
demo_event_subcategory_assoc esa,
demo_zip_codes z
WHERE eta.event_id=e.id
AND esa.event_id=e.id
AND z.zip=e.zip
AND e.active=1
AND esa.subcategory_id IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
AND (
(eta.start_timestamp >= 1162281600 AND eta.start_timestamp <= 1162368000)
OR
(eta.end_timestamp < 1162281600 AND eta.end_timestamp > 1162285200))
AND (3963.20477315*(2*asin(sqrt(POWER(sin((0.59533458956
-z.lat_radians)/2),2) +
cos(0.59533458956)*cos(z.lat_radians)*POWER(sin((-2.06592416764 -
z.long_radians)/2),2)))) < 50)
GROUP BY eta.id
ORDER BY subcat_count DESC, eta.id
LIMIT 0, 50

then you run this query:

SELECT FOUND_ROWS() AS total_records


THANKS for your effort chris.
