In what way isn't it working? Do you get an error message, or just not
the result you were expecting?
If it's the latter (in particular, if you're getting "correct login" no
matter what values you use for $user and $pass), the issue is likely
related to the fact that mssql_query() returns a result identifier which
doesn't necessarily have any correlation to the contents of the result
set -- it'll only return false if there's an error in your query (and a
query can be error-free and still not return data).
For what you're doing, you'll probably want to take a look at
