I installed WP 2.9 successfully but when I go to the log in page and log in, it keeps coming back with:

  The website declined to show this webpage
 HTTP 403  
   Most likely causes:
"This website requires you to log in.
 
   What you can try:
     Go back to the previous page.

I know I have entered the correct information.  The above wording is from IE 8, but I have the same issue with all 3 major browsers (IE 8, FF 3.5.5, and Chrome 3.0.195.38).  Any ideas?  It's driving me nuts.  I know I've done everything correctly on my end so I figure it's a config thing on the web server.
