Why do you get this error? Maybe because:

If you get this error, a good troubleshooting action is to install phpMyAdmin at http://phpwizard.net/projects/phpMyAdmin/ (install it by editing your username and pass to config.inc.php) and when you run it you can see if there are any databases installed and what their names are. If there are no database(s) to select from, you'll need to contact the system administrator to create one for you.
