You don't have to enter the root password in the configuration file. Only change the 'config' into 'cookie'.

The user name you entered was 'root', right?

You supposed absolutely right!
Actually it should work the way you did. At the moment I've no Windows machine accessable (I'm at the office) but in one or two hours I'm at home and will check this step by step.

Putting the root password into the phpmyadmin configurations file depends on what you want:
1.) If you want easy access with phpmyadmin you will set 'auth_type' to 'config' and insert also the root password. You now can access without any manual authentication. You and everybody else.
2.) A better way is to set 'auth_type' to 'cookie' and not insert the root password into the phpmyadmin configuration file. phpmyadmin will now ask you about the password.
Ok, that's the theroretical background.
In your case it should work the way you configured your system. Last night I did the same configuration to my system. And: it worked. But only at the first sight.
The problem is: with Internet Explorer it doesn't work but with my favourite browser Phoenix (a Mozilla based browser) it worked perfectly. If I use IE I saw the login form but after entering user name and passwort and pressing the login-button I got back to an empty login form and not to the friendly phpmyadmin.
So I think it's a problem with phpMyAdmin and IE!
David, could you please try it with another browser? Netscape or Opera or Phoenix? Phoenix is by the way my absolute favourite browser (for Linux and Windows).
P.S.: I visited your homepage and thought you were Jewish. But of course I couln't be sure. But "Shalom" as you say means "peace" and that's always a good greeting. And so it finally doesn't matter of what kind of belief someone is.

If I do not place a follow-up to this message, indicating success, it means that I am unable to access PHPMYADMIN via 'localhost' if I assign a password to 'root'....
