WordPress Installation

I’ve just upgraded my version of WordPress and am having problems. To solve some of them, I’m attempting to install a second version of WP in a hidden directory. I did the one-touch install and was promised an email about activating the installation, but still haven’t received it.

I know the files are there, I just don’t know how to set the thing up.

Can anyone point me to the info that Dreamhost intended/intends to send?
