I suppose that your apache and php installation is fine..
i doubt what you have done with MySQL.. I assume that you have installed it well..
by default there is no password for root.
username : "root"
password : ""

put this information in the phpBB config...
and I hope that should do...

I tried PHP5 with Apache as you did, I had many problems getting PHP5, Apache2 and MySQL to work together.

I have PHP4 installed again now,

And used the following in httpd.conf (apache) for PHP:

ScriptAlias /PHP/ "c:/PHP/"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .cspx .html .htm
Action application/x-httpd-php "/PHP/php.exe"

Hope this helps.
