Use the pconnect functions.  These do exactly that.

eg. mysql_pconnect(....) at the top of your page, and it will re-use the
database connection for you.
mysql_close() won't close a permanent connection.

Please don't post general questions to the php-dev list.  This is for
development OF PHP, not IN PHP.
