I have installed Magento through Bluehosts Simplescripts 3 times, follow Magento Database Sample data instructions and having a successful installation, i have installed Magento and the Sample Data 2 times manually. Each time i have finished the installation the Sample data is not available in the frontend or backend.

Magento version -
Sample data version - magento_sample_data_for_1.6.1.0.sql

I have spent 2 days doing this now and i am a point now where i am about to move on, i was told Magento was the program to use but so far i am only seeing failure and if this is how we start then i hate to know what i am in for.

the url is am dealing with -

In phpAdmin my database consists of 250 tables

when i put in categories and products of my own nothing appears on the front end either, i would think once i had input my own data something would happen on the front end.
