If you are sure the alternator is good, and it still isn't charging the battery, I would suspect a bad fusible link. The fusible link is between the battery and alternator and is designed to burn out, much like a fuse, if the power from the alt exceeds a certain amperage.

Have you checked to see if the voltage at the battery changes when the engine is started?
