I just went through the install with limesurvey190plus-build9343-20101026 . After it populated the database, I got the message
Your installation is now complete. The final step is to remove or rename the LimeSurvey installation directory (admin/install) on your server since it may be a security risk.
 
Once this directory has been removed or renamed you will be able to log in to your new LimeSurvey Installation.

So I renamed the 'admin' directory 'administration'. Then, when I went the website root, I got these errors:
Warning: require(/home/user/limesurvey190plus-build9343-20101026/admin/globalsettings.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/user/limesurvey190plus-build9343-20101026/common.php on line 236
 
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/user/limesurvey190plus-build9343-20101026/admin/globalsettings.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear') in /home/user/limesurvey190plus-build9343-20101026/common.php on line 236

When I renamed the admin directory back to 'admin', I get the normal welcome site as usual.

What am I supposed to do with the admin directory?

Oh, I see now. Delete 'admin/install' directory, not delete the "Administration or installation directory." :P
