I don't know the root beer kit that you bought, but if the yeast is
going like mad, then CO2 is being generated. You probably have to
wait a week or more for the carbonation to be reasonable.

yeah, but compared to the wineexpert kit, this thing is not doing
anything. I'll sit and wait a bit

in fact compared to water, it is doing about the same. I still think
the water was too hot when i added the yeast and killed it.

today I gave up, and went and did some testing.

warm water to me is about 120F. I'm assuming i killed the yeast. so I
went and put another shot of yeast in. we shall see what happens
