Need a little help here with the following:

I am using Jodometer to create a up counting odometer which has the 100% effect that I need in looks and functionality.

I need to be able to call the starting value out of a MYSQL database.

Any ideas? Source code included:

HTML Code:
<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","geewizz_counter","cardiff1984");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db("geewizz_counter", $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM counternumber");

echo "<table border='1'>
<tr>
<th>number</th>

</tr>";

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  {
  echo "<tr>";
  echo "<td>" . $row['number'] . "</td>";

  echo "</tr>";
  }
echo "</table>";

?>
