These are the steps that have been taken

Downloaded the PHPBB installer
Downloaded and installed PHP (verified working)
Dowloaded latest version of MYSQL

Installed MYSQL using installer
Installed ODBC from MYSQL site
Went to Data Sources and created a site DNS for ODBC and tested out ok
Created the my.cnf file no problems
After everything is rebooted, I get a green light on MYSQL

Ran install.php and filled out the info

For DNS I put down the one assigned in previous step
For database name I put the name of the database I created at the MYSQL prompt

I put root for the username
I used the password created during the install of MYSQL

Permissions were set on the config.php and install.php files

Now I get the message cannot connect to database

Please help
