I have this so far.

$user =$_POST['Username'];
$pass =$_POST['Password'];

@ $db = mysql_pconnect("localhost", "user", "pass");
if (!$db)
  echo "Error: Could not connect to database.";
mysql_select_db("db name");


It connects fine.  What I need to know is how to take their username and password and check the db if they have given the right username and pass.
