Consider this hypothetical users table..

[code]
<?php

$q = "select firstName, lastName from users where login = $_POST['login']";
$result = mysql_query($q,$conn); // $conn is the connection pointer

$username = mysql_fetch_row($result);

?>
[/code]

That would make $username[0] = user's first name, and $username[1] = user's last name..
