SQL Error on MySQL query

Hi All
I am importing the Mysql schema for SNORT but the following query is causing errors

CREATE TABLE schema ( vseq        INT      UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
                      ctime       DATETIME NOT NULL,
                      PRIMARY KEY (vseq));

ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 23: 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 'schema ( vseq        INT      UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
                      ctime    ' at line 1

Or enclose the table name in backticks, like:
CREATE TABLE `schema` ...
you should change the table-name.
Schema is a "protected" word in mysql
change schema in test, and that should work...

Thx for both of you..I will accept leannonn's answer mainly because I can not rename the database name because SNORT needs it as is. Thx
