I have a user who I have promoted to being a mod but he can not view the mod forum. How do I make some truely a mod I have made his name a mod of 5 forums. And the view option for the mod forum is set to mod how do I make it so the system thinks he is a mod. I dont want to change him to an administartor

did you set him to be the moderator of the mod forum? In phpbb2, there aren't global mods like there were in phpBB1. This means that the system treats a user as a moderator only if the user specifically is assigned as a moderator of a forum.

I have this user set up as a mod of a few different forums. But not the mod of the mod only forum in order for him to view he has to be a mod of that forum???

Correct. If you have the forum permissions set to Mod, then the user must be the moderator of the forum to gain access. The better solution is to make it private and then give the user access if you don't want him/her to be a mod of that forum.

For the private is there a way to sert it up that when you sign up you do not have access to it until i grant it

When you set it to private, I believe no one can access it until he/she is given permission, which is done in user admin-permissions..select the user and then a list of forums comes up which allows you to grant him/her access to a private forum, or moderator of a forum.
