Make sure there are execute privs on config.php (I have 0644), and on 
the local/ directory (I have 0755).

You might also quickly check that config.php is being executed. Add a 
basic print statement:
   echo "In config";

If you see "In config" when you reload your browser (and possibly some 
errors, just ignore those), then you may have an error how you're 
including the skin. If so let us know what statements you're using.

If you don't see the "In config" then check that you have the 
installations setup right, with the directories in the right place.
