 There is a problem on different servers installing the new WordPress
 2.3.2. I used Google and found out, that several other people have the
 same problem:

 I cannot run the installation, because I get several SQL exceptions (for
 example something like: WordPress database error Table
 'wordpress.wp_options' doesn't exist for query SELECT option_value FROM
 wp_options WHERE option_name = 'siteurl''...

 The function which creates the problem is "is_blog_installed()" in the
 file "/wp-includes/functions.php". In line 896 the function is trying to
 access tables, which do not exist at this time (because WordPress is not
 yet installed).

 "is_blog_installed()" is called in line 168 in the file wp-settings.php.
 "wp-settings.php" is called in the file "wp-config.php" which is called
 from the "install.php"
