strange that it returns " Query Error ", as that is not in the code....

try this one:
$res = mysql_query($sql) or die("<b>Query Failed</b><br>\n".$sql."<br>\n".mysql_errno().": ".mysql_error());

if still no result try
print($sql);
to check if the sql is correct in PHP (some string parsing might make the sql incorrect).

you can also try to put your sql on a single line:
$sql = "SELECT directory. * , MATCH (keywords, title) AGAINST ('%%%pottery%%') AS score FROM directory WHERE MATCH (keywords, title ) AGAINST ('%%%pottery%%') ORDER BY score DESC";

You can also drop the % symbols unless you are really searching for a literal % symbol, in which case you should escape it with \%

Thanks this works BUT:

$sql = "SELECT directory. * , MATCH (keywords, title) AGAINST ('%%%pottery%%') AS score FROM directory WHERE MATCH (keywords, title ) AGAINST ('%%%pottery%%') ORDER BY score DESC";

How many rows are in the table? I term that appears in too many rows is considered a stop-word and is not searched against, since too large a percentage of rows will be returned.

Three letter words are too short, it is possible to change the setting and recompile if needs be, you can also use the IN BOOLEAN MODE searching to get around the half row limits and 3 word constraints.
