There is a pretty good tutorial on a simular topic on Site Point... it deals
with restricting SOME pages of a website, and would be reasonably easy to
adapt to work with a permissions table -- although I'd keep the user_id in a
session, and check if *THIS USER* has permission for *THIS PAGE*, rather
than checking if *THIS SESSION* has permission.

It depends how you want to structure your permissions, but I've got a few
ideas on how to extend/modify the code to suit your needs -- feel free to
contact me off list.

I used this tutorial and code base as the basis of my own session management
and user login stuff, which is functioning well.

Note: it does use cookies, which you may or may not consider an issue.
