If you want to know exactly why mysql functions fail you should always, and
I do mean always, use this form:
$Result = mysql_query($Query, $Connection)
        or die (mysql_error());
You will always get a fairly descriptive error from mysql.  If you still do
not understand the error, at least you have more specific information for
this list.
