I don't have the answer, but when that happens, the first thing I do is dig
around in phpMyAdmin(.org)... it's a web based GUI for MySQL, and most of
the time, when you do something (like copy a table), it shows you the query
used to do it... then you just need to copy it, and integrate it into your
php script.

Failing that, this Q really needs to be asked on the mysql list.
