Default Connecting to mySQL with $this->

Hi all - I've been creating procedural code on a WAMP platform for three years. I'm just beginning to learn OOP via PHP5. Here's the problem:
I can connect to mySQL database with the following code:
$connect=mysql_connect('localhost','rick','1 23456');
This works each time, every time.

When I try to OOP code this (via Programmer-to-Programmer Professional PHP5) as:
public function __construct($widgetID) {
$this->connect=mysql_connect('localhost','rick','123456' );
if(! is_resource($this->$hDB)) {
     throw new Exception('Unable to connect to the database.');
I throw an Exception each time every time.

Can anyone help me solve this problem? All suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks - Rick

Are you using MySQL 5.0?
If you are, you need to change mysql_connect() to mysqli_connect().
How this helps,
