I have set up the wp-config.php file for my system. I created a /blog directory and when I point my browser to the path to /wp-admin/install.php I get a page with 3 lines of Chinese characters. I downloaded WordPress from wordpress.org.
My server setup is as follows:
O/S FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE
mysql Ver 12.22 Distrib 4.0.18
I have currently removed the WP files as I noticed that when I did a 'view source' of the install.php page my database info including password was viewable and I did not want that info on the web.
