recent versions of php have defaulted to register_globals = off in the php.ini
this means you should address URL passed variables from the global $_GET array

eg

echo 'Welcome to my website, '. $_GET['name'] .'!<br />';

unfortunately old books can never quite teach a language that is growing every day - am sure you'll get the hang of things tho.,
