Well i think i know what your problem is on the "update" link. You have:
echo '<a href="updatecode.php?FirstName='.$row.' ">Update</a> ' ;

when it should be
$id = $row;
echo "<a href='updatecode.php?id=$id'>Update</a>";

This way when they click on the "update" link, it uses there ID instead of first name, which in the long run could cause problems.
Oh yeah, dont forget to change it on the first code block (line 29 and 32).

hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
still m facing the same prob.ur suggesstion does nt work out.....

Try this code....

//select.php

<html>
<body bgcolor="pink">
<?

	$con=mysql_connect("localhost","root","root");
	if (!$con)
	  {
		die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
	  }
	 mysql_select_db("test", $con);
	 $result=mysql_query("select * from student");
	  
	 echo "<table border='3'>
	  
			<tr>
				<th >Firstname</th>
				<th>Lastname</th>
				<th> Age</th>
				<th>Update</th>
			</tr>";

	 if(mysql_num_rows($result) > 0)
	{
		 while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
		 {
			 
			echo "<tr>";
				echo "<td>" . $row['FirstName'] . "</td>";
				echo "<td>" . $row['LastName'] . "</td>";
				echo "<td>" . $row['Age']. "</td>";
				echo '<td><a href="updatecode.php?id='.$row['id'].' ">Update</a></td> ' ;
				//Note : don't pass name as an identifier to update record, you must have to use id(primary key)
				//because more then one students can have same name.
			echo "</tr>";
			 
		 }
	}
	mysql_close($con);
?>
 </body>
	 
</html>
