Access Denied Error When Logging into Sharepoint 2010

I've just rolled out Sharepoint Foundation 2010 for the first time. For some reason, I can login to the sharepoint site as administrator - however I cannot login as anyone else. I get an "error: Access Denied". In sharepoint, In Site Permissions,  I gave several domain users "full control" access, however that doesn't seem to have helped. Where else do I need to assign permissions?

This isn't the Central Admin site you are trying to grant access to, correct?

When you deployed your web app, did you select Kerberos or NTLM authentication?

No, this isn't the central admin site. This is just the regular sharepoint site. I chose NTLM for authentication.

Ok.  How did you grant them access?  Add them directly to the site or did you use SharePoint Groups?  I assume they are trying to access the root site and not a subsite or list beneath it.

Within central administration, I clicked on the site actions and then went to site permissions. From there, I just added the individual user and gave them Full Control, Design, Contribute and Read permissions.

If you did that from Central Admin, you are indeed trying to grant them access to the Central Admin site, not the regular SharePoint site.  You need to perform the same steps from the SharePoint site.

That worked great. Thanks. One last question I have. I have migrated all of my data from the old site to the new site. However, I noticed that when I login as different users, their home page is blank. On the old sharepoint site, their homepage had a list of links the users had setup, a section of announcements, etc. I was able to add these sections to one users home page, however it didn't populate this into any of the other users main site. Do the users just have to setup the home page and what sections they see? that doesn't seem quite right. I've uploaded a screenshot of the default page for the new site and the old site so you can see what I'm talking about.
