Janet and Miles, Thank you for your suggestions.

Here is more information for you.
I am running:
Fedora core 5 Linux php 5.14
    apache 2.2.2
    mysql 5.0.22

I have added the mysql_error code to my script as you suggested.
I already knew the what the error was by looking in the error logs.
It is, "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (13)"

That means 'permission denied'.

Are you sure mysql is running on "localhost" ?

FC5 has "selinux" doesn't it - make sure permissions are set up properly for that too.
