    Did you also clear out your MySQL tables?

    It just means there are some dtabase tables, but you can forget about those.

    Open wp-config.php
    Find this line:
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    Change that to:
    $table_prefix = 'blog2_'; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    and upload the changed file.

    Your install should go just fine :)
