---->
if (msql_connect("localhost") == false):
    echo "Could not connect to RDBMS<BR>";
endif;
$result = msql("richard", "INSERT INTO tNames ( firstname, lastname, age ) VALUES ( 'richard', 'whitely', 44 )" );
echo "INSERT result: $result <br>";
<----

If the query was badly formed or failed to execute for some other reason I would expect $result to be false, but instead it is unset. The echo statement following just prints "INSERT result:  <br>";

It would seem that not only is msql() not returning a result but is also failing entirely as when the relation is dumped there is no data.

That is exactly what it is supposed to do.  FALSE in PHP is usually returned in the form of an empty string.
You can check what's going wrong using 
echo msql_error();
