I use HTTP Auth, user root, password mysql root password.

If you can connect locally, but not from other systems then its possible that the mysql account you are trying to use has host restrictions, which you can them remove.

(change the phpmyadmin passphrase if you use the cookie method)

PS Vista Ultimate here as well with no problems, in case you were worried about that.

I don't understand how what you just said relates to anything that was said previously.

Nothing we discussed remotely relates to multiple users.
