Ok guys here is the spill,

Here is the script I am using as suggested by MYSQL to connect to the database...
...and I have placed them in full<?php tags!

"$link = mysql_pconnect('localhost', 'root', 'rubberchicken');
if (!$link) {
die('Not connected : ' . mysql_error());
// make foo the current db
$db_selected = mysql_select_db('cadets', $link);
if (!$db_selected) {
die ('Can\'t use Cadets : ' . mysql_error());

Thats in theory should work i have checked it through over and over! This is what I get...

"You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''3'' at line 4"

I have played with this for hours and hours an I am stuck please help.
