Default mysql_connect() will not connect!!!!

I'm using Windows 2003 server, its running IIS and PHP 4.3.10. I installed the latest mysql. Whenever I use PHP to connect to the MySQL database it gives me the error message: Unable to connect to MySQL server.
I can connect from the command line, i'm trying to install php-fusion forums, it gives me the same error. The server is set to localhost no matter what user I set. Whats the problem??
