You're only expecting one row to be returned, right? You could test like

if($row = mysql_fetch_array($checkuser))
  $_SESSION['UN'] = $row['username'];
  $_SESSION['UserLoggedIn'] = TRUE;
  header("Location: http://yourdomain.com/login.php";);

You should use an absolute URI for your header() call, not a relative

Well, Apache 2 and PHP aren't stable together yet. It's not recommended
you use them together and that could be causing your problem.

Are you including this file before or after session_start()? If you call
session_start(), include the above code, and then $_SESSION['UN'] is not
available later in the main.php page, then it's a bug...
