I need help creating the tables for my database, I've got all my tables to work except the first one. For some reason it says it is unable to create the first table and i get this error " ERROR 1005 (HY000): Can't create table 'jfunchio.rental' (errno: 150)" I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what is wrong with my create table query. Also if anyone has any tips to make my code better I would appreciate it.

You have to define the referenced (foreign) tables first before you can define a table which contains a foreign key. So create the rental tables as the last one.
