Switch your application over to mySql and use mysql_insert_id().

Oh, you wanted a serious answer.  Try
$query = "SELECT @@IDENTITY";

using @@identity may faile in different cases. I do it like that. I add a additional collum with default NULL to the table.   When inserting a new row i put a value in that column. Then I search for the row with that value and take the ID from that row. For preaparing the next insert you have to set  the value in the additional colllum to Null.
