Blank screens are usually surpressed errors.

Are you able to get into the Admin CP by typing its URL directly? e.g. http://yoursite.com/admin.php

If that is also blank, then we can try and unsurpress the error.

Try adding this line to your library/config.php file:

ini_set('display_errors', true);
Then try again and see if there are now errors presented.
after I did this ini_set('display_errors', true); I got got this
Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Zend/Controller/Request/Abstract.php' (include_path='.:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/lib/php:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/home2/bareblog/php') in /home2/bareblog/public_html/library/Zend/Controller/Request/Http.php on line 23
No, I did the unistall from admin. BUT, I did manage to click away from the admin BEFORE the cache rebuild was finish. Could this be the issue?

For giggles,

Add this to your htaccess file:
include_path ".:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/lib/php:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/home2/bareblog/php:/home2/bareblog/public_html/library"
