Retrieving news listings from mysql database


I wanted to know how I can achieve this. I have a list of 10 - 12 news items which I want to display in an swf file as links. On clicking on the links the corresponding news article should open up with the news article title on the top and the actual article below it. At the bottom of the article should be a link to go back to the news section.

I’ve read up on some of the articles posted in the tutorials section, but they seem to retrieve only a single item from the database instead of a whole list.

Please help.
