It sounds like you did not do a clean install. Boot the machine from your install DVD. After it boots, instead of allowing the installation to proceed, click on the top menu item "Utilities". Then, select "Disk Utility". Highlight the drive (lower entry) and erase the drive. Format it as one partition using HFS extended journaled.

Now you can proceed to install OS X and applications.

Is there any particular reason you wish to do a clean install? It's very rare when this procedure has to be done. This isn't Windows.

Regards.
