Can not connect mysql from php

I install Fedora 4 with web server, after that I installed mysql
5.0.15. Now I can connect to mysql from command line and
mysql-administrator and mysql-query-browser. But when I try to test to
connect from php code, it told me that "can not connect to local mysql
through /tmp/mysql.sock. /tmp/mysql.sock is my sock file to connect and
permission is set good. when I add phpinfo() to my php code, it show me
that mysql lib php uses is 4.1.X, and sockect file is
/var/lib/mysql.sock. It looks like PHP mysql module still be old
version, and can not connect to the new 5.0.15. Anybody can give a hint
on that?

You need PHP and the MySQL server to agree on where the socket is.

One way is to set mysql.default_s ocket and/or mysqli.default_ socket
in php.ini. Another way is to pass the correct parameters, including
the socket path, to mysqli->connect or mysql_connect() . For
mysql_connect() , you pass servername:/path/to/socket for the server
argument.

Be sure to restart the web server after changing php.ini.

Sorry if this is a really dumb question. I am trying to connect to our remote MySQL server (which is running just fine). I have a perl script which worked just fine on my other Fedora 4 box (all servers are Fedora 4 with latests updates). The one that worked fine it down and I cannot compare anything against it (it was a client also). My problem is, when I try to connect to the server I get:
