thx Craig
....oh my....I know this can't be right and I have to do lots more
reading but phpmyadmin is now accessible publically now.

Alexander Dalloz pointed me right to the answer but I was too much of a
brick to catch the hint!

The problem was/is in Apache Order Deny,Allow
We had it set to Deny from all
Allow from   then:
Allow from 

but nothing public.

the way I have it now does not seem right to me as it's too wide open
but for right now testing

I just made it:

Allow from all  and did a apachectl graceful ....had someone try it and
weeeeee it worked!

now, before I move on to some of the other problems I have to get lots
smarter on Order Deny,Allow. Certainly there should be a better way than
Allow from all!
