Can NOT Create or Drop a Database :o(

I just Installed MySQL v4.1.14 and had created a Database (from a
script). But I would like to redo the Database portion of it but am not
able to drop the Database. If I do a "show database;" I still see the
database. But when I look in the data directory, it is not there. Below
is my attempt the create / drop the DB:

mysql> create database testlink;
ERROR 1007 (HY000): Can't create database 'testlink'; database exists
mysql> drop database testlink;
ERROR 1008 (HY000): Can't drop database 'testlink'; database doesn't

Would appreciate any / all help. I really don't want to re-install
MySQL all oer again.
