I have setup PHP (32 bit) on IIS7.5 and MySQL 5.1.45 (64 bit)  with success.
phpinfo() shows the MySQL extension loaded, but when I try to use
mysql_connect( $host, $user, $password ) in a PHP script I get following

PHP Warning:  mysql_connect() [<a

I have search on the Internet for a solution for this but without any luck.
Any ideas?

Yes, first check that MySQL is actually listening on port 3306
("Netstat" should do that trick), and, if it is, try turning your
firewall off.  What is the value of $host?
