I am getting this error on my initial installation.
To get to this point I have downloaded the full version 1.1.3. I have unzipped the package and uploaded via ftp. I have set the permissions as instructed on the app/etc, media, var folders as instructed. When I navigate to the magento install wizard, everything loads up fine. I get through the local settings fine. When I finish imputting the configuration data I get the following error when I continue with the installation.

I have read through a lot of help articles and similar questions posted by other members but they all seem to deal with the upgrade of the software and not the initial installation. I am fairly new to website software installation so if anyone can help me with this problem in lay man’s terms as much as possible, that would be much appreciated.
