I may be being a bit dim, but is there a way of me setting my magento store to be example.com instead of example.com/magento, or do i have to re-install magento in the root directory instead of the magento directory?

Thanks!

Have you tried just moving (or copying) all your files from example.com/magento into the root of example.com? You may also have to edit the .htaccess file if you have rewrites enabled - find the line with:

RewriteBase /magento/
and change to
RewriteBase /

Can not think of anything else.
Let us know!

Or you could just copy index.php and the .htaccess file to where you want them and edit index.php to set it up like an additional store.  The outside world will see it as your main domain even though technically the files are still located under /magento.
