Some further information/questions on this problem.

I wrote a small program just to see if I could connect to the mysql
socket, and I could.
Looking at seliunx policy, I note an item called "Allow HTTPD scripts
to and modules to connect to the network."
That item is unchecked. Should it be checked in order for the php
script to connect using a socket?

That means 'permission denied'.

Are you sure mysql is running on "localhost" ?

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