I haven't coded in PHP for a long time, but I think that your problem
is in this line:

$result1 = mysql_query($sql1,$db);

Up to that point, $db (that should point to a database link
identifier) is not defined. You probably want to assign the
"mysql_connect" result to that $db variable.

So, I think that you will solve your problem by changing your
"mysql_connect" line FROM the current form:

mysql_connect('biggie', 'user', 'password', 'test');

... TO this one:

$db = mysql_connect('biggie', 'user', 'password', 'test');

Am I right?
