Post subject:  Problems installing Drupal

I had two problems installing Drupal 6.17 today:

1. The "automatic database creation" option didn't work. I had to manually create a database and select it to successfully install Drupal.

2. After freshly installing Drupal, I get this error:

"register_globals is enabled. Drupal requires this configuration directive to be disabled. Your site may not be secure when register_globals is enabled."

I went to and verified that I'm using PHP5 and "register_globals" is set to OFF, but still no luck.

Can anyone help me please?

UPDATE: Following other people's advice I created a file called php.ini in my Drupal root directory containing "register_globals = off" and it solved this issue.
