Are you using the the Joomla install package?
Was the folder empty before you uploaded the installation package?

1. Create a database and database user
2. Download to your computer
3. Upload to the server
4. Unpack on the server
5. Point your browser at your site and fill in the details

The url is determined by your domain name (and if in a subdirectory the name of the directory. If installing on a local pc then the install should be in a folder under the localhost root and the url would be localhost/foldername.

1. So you have installed Joomla (with the Host's quick install) ?
2. You are trying to install a second Joomla (with the Host's quick install) ?
