Can't install ACT 2009 because SQL Server already installed

I already have my own license for SQL Server 2005 installed. I have attempted to install ACT 2009 three times but it fails with the error message below. The message tells me to provide a unique instance name, but gives me no way to do that. I stopped SQL Server before the last attempt but it didn't help. I really don't want to uninstall SQL Server unless absolutely necessary. Please help!

 

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Setup

------------------------------

An instance with the same name is already installed on this computer. To proceed with SQL Server Setup, provide a unique instance name.
