I have a wordpress site that I built in a sub-domain.  I did a fresh install in the permanent domain folder and set the config file to the proper database.  The site is there and connected to the DB but none of my Page enties or Menus are showing.  It is as if it is a fresh install.  (Which I guess it is)  Does anyone have any clues on how to fix this?

Take a look at Backupbuddy - It's not free, but it's always a life saver for me in these situations.

first back up all your databases and website files.
one way -
(I'm assuming you have all the right themes and plugins installed in the new site?)
your existing wp site in the sub folder has details of where the website is in the database and you need to change that to the new location. (go into the working admin and go to Settings->General  and update the wordpress URL and the site address and save. - you will now be locked out of that website but don't worry (you backed everything up yes?)
recheck the new website wp-config.php file that its looking at the right database. and has the same table prefix for the database  (you could actually copy the old wp-config.php file instead)
now go into the new website admin goto settings ->permalinks   and choose the one you want and resave (even if there's no change)

should now work...  

if not restore the back up and try one or the links in the earlier answers.
