I have a panorama that i created in another program.  How, in Photoshop, do I get rid of the distortation that is in the photo?  In other words straighten and flatten the image.

Unless you don't have the original sources I'd suggest creating the panorama in Photoshop and letting it correct distortion automatically.  Outside of that what sort of distortion do you see?

tried that after posting question.  Same effect - road that ran horizontal along the bottom curves up at each end of the pic.
I'm not sure if it'll be a good fit, but the only tool I can think of to address that would be the Lens Correction filter. (Filter -> Distort -> Lens Correction).  Then try the "remove distortion" slider at the top.  If the distortion is only at the ends though I'm not sure if it'll address it.  You might also try Edit -> Transform -> Warp and see if you can get reasonable results.

I can see where both would work.  But for what I want to do it doesn't do what I need.  Maybe an aftermarket filter that corrects this?  I would have thought this would be something that everyone would use that's shooting wide-angle/fisheye shot or panos.
