it seems you are wrong on this part ...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. $sql=mysql_query("select * from user where username='".$_REQUEST['textfield']."' and password='".md5($_REQUEST['textfield2'])."'");
you should use POST instead REQUEST, because you'll send the data and not request the data (CMIIW), and please add "()" to use WHERE command with $_POST func..

plus.. to meet the false or true condition,, use "if" function and do comparison condition with mysql_num_rows function to retrieves the number of rows from a result set($sql).. as result.. define the header location...

let me show you an ex. (untested)
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. include "../../conn.php";
  3. $sql="SELECT * FROM user WHERE (username = '".$_POST['textfield']."') AND (password = '".md5($_POST['textfield2'])."')";
  4. $n = mysql_num_rows($sql);
  5. if ($n == 1){ 
  6.     $_SESSION['username'] = $_POST['username'];
  7.     header("location:menu.php");
  8. }
  9. header("location:admin.php");

out of interest, why would you want that particular page?

EDIT: confusion has been cleared, so the question is obsolete.
