Ok, I've got this thing working right, but I am getting the same record for each value displayed on the page.

<?php
$i = 0;
while ($i < 2) {
      $i = $i+1;
      if ($i==1) {
            echo "<tr>";
      }
      echo "<td width=\"250\">";
?>
<form action="/admin/delete_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>" method="post">
     <a href="/admin/edit_provider.php?providerID=<?= $providerID ?>" >
       <?= $strCompanyname ?>
     </a>&nbsp;
     <a href="/admin/confirm_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>">
       <input type="button" value="Delete" class="btn2">
     </a>
</form>
<?php
 echo "</td>";
      if ($i==3) {
            echo "</tr>";
            $i=0;
      }
}
?>

This is the entire code block:

<?php
if ($_GET['list'] == "list") {

$SQLstr2 = mysql_query("SELECT tblAdspace.providerID, tblAdspace.strCompanyname FROM tblAdspace")
or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($SQLstr2)){
      $strCompanyname = $row['strCompanyname'];
      $providerID = $row['providerID'];
}
?>
<table id="admin_list" align="center" border="1">
<?php
$i = 0;
while ($i < 2) {
      $i = $i+1;
      if ($i==1) {
            echo "<tr>";
      }
      echo "<td width=\"250\">";
?>
<form action="/admin/delete_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>" method="post">
     <a href="/admin/edit_provider.php?providerID=<?= $providerID ?>" >
       <?= $strCompanyname ?>
     </a>&nbsp;
     <a href="/admin/confirm_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>">
       <input type="button" value="Delete" class="btn2">
     </a>
</form>
<?php
 echo "</td>";
      if ($i==3) {
            echo "</tr>";
            $i=0;
      }
}
?>

Try this:

<?php
if ($_GET['list'] == "list") {

$SQLstr2 = mysql_query("SELECT tblAdspace.providerID, tblAdspace.strCompanyname FROM tblAdspace")
or die(mysql_error());

$i = 0;

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($SQLstr2)){
      $strCompanyname = $row['strCompanyname'];
      $providerID = $row['providerID'];
?>
<table id="admin_list" align="center" border="1">
<?php
      $i = $i+1;
      if ($i==1) {
            echo "<tr>";
      }
      echo "<td width=\"250\">";
?>
<form action="/admin/delete_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>" method="post">
     <a href="/admin/edit_provider.php?providerID=<?= $providerID ?>" >
       <?= $strCompanyname ?>
     </a>&nbsp;
     <a href="/admin/confirm_provider.php?Company=<?= $strCompanyname ?>">
       <input type="button" value="Delete" class="btn2">
     </a>
</form>
<?php
 echo "</td>";
      if ($i==3) {
            echo "</tr>";
            $i=0;
      }
}
?>

As under_dog said, your display portion needs to be inside the while() loop. As it stood before, your while loop was completing, and only the very last record found in the loop was passed on to the display portion of the script.
