LAMP server configuration problems.

Im trying to set up a LAMP server, and Im having a problem. Everything is installed (apache 2, php5, php-myadmin, mysql) with no problems at all. The apache server seems to be configured correctly because when I type localhost into the address bar of my browser, the default page displays correctly, and when I add test.php (default test php page supplied with PHP) on the end of this, this also works fine. But if I try to access a php page which is also trying to access a mysql database, I get the following error message:

ERROR: MySQL is not correctly installed. Verify that the php-mysql module is installed and that the php.ini has something similar to ''.
I assume the php-mysql module is the actual program which I have verified and it is installed. I just cant work out why the '' is not loading because ive checked, and its there.

I just wondered if anyone had had a similar sort of problem? Or if anyone could make a suggestion.

Im using fedora core 6.
