I'm new to PHP and am trying to code a site where I have a browser-generated login box, calling a username and password from a MySQL database.  After a VERY long time of looking on the web to find code that I could use, I've tried every code sample I found.  Both "as-is" and modified, but nothing worked as described.  I'm comfortable with this piece, but I can't get it to see the username or password to allow me to get logged in.  This is a difficult question for me, but might be fairly straightforward for the experts.  I'll need more help later, and I'm running out of points to assign, so I'm only giving it a "This question is moderately difficult" level.  If you guys think it's worth more, please let me know and I'll up it appropriately.  

My code is attached: LoginNumber2.txt

I'd really appreciate any help I can get.
