I have done everything by the instructions and this is what i get...

Install OS Commerce (1/4)

Installation location

Install on domain
Install in directory
Leave empty to install in the root directory of the domain (access example: http://domain/).
Enter only the directory name to install in a directory (for http://domain/name/ enter name only). This directory SHOULD NOT exist, it will be automatically created!

Admin access data

Administrator-username (Did that) (you need this to enter the protected admin area)

Password (Did that too) (you need this to enter the protected admin area)

Base configuration

Shop name Delightful Gift Shop
Owner's name Jim and Rita Beach

Email sender Customer Service (will display in the "FROM" field in the emails sent by the shop)
Your email address (copy of all orders will be sent to this address)
Use SSL (secure transactions) No
Secure server hostname in case you use SSL. Only hostname (and username in case of a shared certificate). Don't add 'https://' and don't use leading or trailing slash.
Show prices incl. tax Yes
When clients register:
Require client's birthdate No
Require client's gender No
Require company name No
Require suburb No
Require State Yes

install os commerce

Install OS Commerce (2/4)

The installation can not be completed:
- This directory already exists or the directory field is empty

Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.

now if i done this correctly why isn't it installing i get same response with all my stuff on fantastico.
