Issue with reinstalling Intel compiler

Hello,
I am trying to install the Intel C/C++ compilers on Fedora 16. The install script never confirmed to me that it had finished installing so I decided to delete the /opt/intel directory which was created and try over again. Now when I try to run the script I receive the following message:
Initializing, please wait...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Intel Composer XE 2011 Update 9 for Linux* is already installed.
If you want to reinstall the Intel Composer XE 2011 Update 9 for Linux*
please uninstall current version and run install script again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am unsure what to do since I deleted the directory which probably contained the uninstall script. Any help would be much appreciated.

You could find the rpmdb entries by
rpm -qa | grep intel
and remove the entries for these products (as root) by rpm -e
Then you will be able to do a clean install.
