I am looking for someone that could tell me how to go about install drupal 6 since the one in fantastico is 7.0 and I need 6 for a phpbb3 bridge to work.

I have drupal on it now but I can't install gives me this error

Warning: fopen(./sites/default/default.settings.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/freedo41/public_html/drupal/includes/ on line 187

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/freedo41/public_html/drupal/includes/ in /home/freedo41/public_html/drupal/includes/ on line 618

The problem is that the file exists in the directory listed here

Hi Milhouz,

I'm sorry you're having trouble installing Drupal 6. I see that you have the files uploaded to your drupal subfolder and it looks like Drupal just needs some final configuration settings in the Drupal Administration area.

Where are you seeing these errors, for example do they occur when you are trying to log into the Drupal Administration area?

I noticed that permissions for the settings.php file are not set correctly, per the Drupal installation instructions:

You can set file permissions on files by following the instructions covered here in our article on Changing File Permissions.

Please let us know if changing the file permissions solves this for you. If not, please let us know where you are seeing these errors and how we can recreate them so that we can troubleshoot this further for you.
