tynyint/bool, See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/numeric-type-overview.html
These types are synonyms for TINYINT(1). A value of zero is considered false. Non-zero values are considered true: If you really need to save it as true/false string, then you might need a char/varchar, but the other one is far better.
