I got to the installation page and entered in my database connection information. I was then redirected to the /report/ page and provide such errors as table already exists, column already exists. I have deleted the install.php file. I deleted all of the database tables. I go back to the index.php page and the tables get recreated, but I get random table alreayd exists or column already exists errors. No error message has been the same.

Installed on Go Daddy hosting Linux / MySQL 5 shared servers.

Any ideas?

Not sure why the Magento team does not have installation instructions for Go Daddy? I had to poke around the forum to find all of the pieces neccessary.

Fixed it. I had to go in and comment out the file that was trying to build the tables.
