[Typo3] Database compare not working

I have installed typo3 on several servers without a problem, but on this
particular server I am having a strange problem. I have formatted the
entire server(although not because of this problem) and re-installed the
OS, then typo3 and the problem persists.
This server is running Debian linux Sarge, Apache 2, Mysql 4.1. I
installed Typo3 by adding the entries into the sources list, and using
apt-get to install. Then I downloaded the 3.7 sources and created the
proper symlinks. Then used typo3-site-installer to create a domian.
upon connecting to the install tool, everything goes fine and a DB is
created. I continue the configuration and go to database analyzer. I
click on compare and get a list of tables that need to be changed,
dropped, and/or altered. I click on 'write to databade', and it comes
back to the exact same page, still showing all the same differences in
the DB, and on further review, did nothing.
I have followed this method on several other servers, including my test
box, and have never had this problem. I checked to see if the db was
writable and manually created a table, and it worked. I thought maybe
it was just my browser not updating correctly and on refresh it gives me
the same. When I try to log into the backend, I get a bunch of database
errors, for which the compare has always fixed. I am at a loss as to
where to go from here to debug the problem. This is a friends server
who I am/was trying to convince to move to typo3 for his sites, but this
incident has made him think it might be too much trouble.
Can anyone give me a clue where to go from here?
