I have a referans table named RT_REFERANS
I have columns in that table named rt_name, rt_id, rt_value

I try to use a couple of row insert sentence but it gives an error code like
Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in ... in the line of  mysql_query($sql,$con);

$sql="INSERT INTO RT_REFERANS(rt_name,rt_id,rt_value) VALUES ('rt_sehir',1,'Adana');
INSERT INTO RT_REFERANS(rt_name,rt_id,rt_value) VALUES ('rt_sehir',2,'Adiyaman');

that error means that $con is not a connection object identifier (as returned by mysql_connect())

note that with MySQL, you can insert several rows "at once":
$sql="INSERT INTO RT_REFERANS(rt_name,rt_id,rt_value) VALUES ('rt_sehir',1,'Adana'), ('rt_sehir',2,'Adiyaman')
