I recommend use of PEAR::MDB2[1] or "PDO"[2]..   typically what I do is run 
the query, rollback if error, continue if not. if you want to be extra 
thorough using MDB2, you can check to make sure the database supports 
transactions, and after a "begin" you can make sure that the transaction has 
been started. my understanding is that PDO has a *very* similar interface to 
MDB2, except that PDO is written in C.

hope that helps some.. if you have more questions post again or email me
