Actually, you omitted the part where iPhoto asked if you wanted it to search your hard drive for images and you clicked "yes." It did exactly what you told it to do.

Unless you messed with the defaults in iPhoto, the library you now have is entirely composed of COPIES of those graphics and whatnot so you can safely delete the entire contents of the library and start over, this time using the "import" command from the File menu to import just the files you specify. Or you can just delete the images you don't want and leave the rest, your choice.

To be on the safe side, of course, you should have a backup before you do anything major.

That's the problem with computers ... they're a bit TOO literal sometimes ...
