mssql_connect() returns NULL regardless of a sane and completed connection.

PHP-5.0.1 zip file from

php.ini is identical to php.ini-recommended with the mssql extension enabled.

Reproduce code:
$foo = mssql_connect("server", "user", "pass");

Expected result:
$foo != NULL

Actual result:
$foo == NULL

mssql_connect() and mssql_pconnect() can return false or a valid resource link. This is infact what it does. If the connect fails for any reason ot wil return false, not null.
