#cd /usr/share
#ls -l

drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 somedate phpmyadmin

#cd /var/www
#ls -l

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 somedate phpmyadmin

So it looks like things (or some things) did get copied over.
(What does the '2' and the '8' refer to?)

Now, with the browser (FF) mapped to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ I no 
longer get an error message.
I simply am left with a blank browser window.

I think that I should mention that in the intervening hours I explored 
making configuration changes suggested in the other tutorial and which 
have their own problems.
These changes were intended to let people map working directories to 
work the same as localhost.

I appreciate and understand advice given with respect to tutorials (gain 
of salt).
I looked for current (e.g. ubuntu 10.04) and (seemingly) reliable sources.
And I read through (er: skimmed) comments and bug reports - even finding 
that one of our own - Ralph Janke - is a contributor to the effort.
