Check to see where it thinks the old data is -- 'it' being the RPM init
script that is issuing that error message.
The two choices of a default RPM install are /var/lib/pgsql and
/var/lib/pgsql/data -- you need to remove the whole tree, leaving
/var/lib/pgsql/data and /var/lib/pgsql/backups left empty.
Now rerun the initscript, and it will happily create a new,empty, database
tree for you that you can start working with.
