There may be two problems with your install currently:

1. The php scripts cannot write to the folders they need to. This is
obvious from the 'Unable to open' errors, and from the fact that you
were able to delete some folders but not others via ftp.

This would have been obvious to you as well, had you visited the
'Basic Configuration' screen in the install tool (as I suggested you
should)! You would have--still will--an error showing that some
directories are not writeable.

Have your host run a command like the following from shell:

chgrp -R nobody typo3conf typo3temp uploads

('nobody' is a common name for the webserver user, it may be different
on your server, but your host should know this...)

2. If this doesn't get IM working, it may be that a) IM is not
installed, or is at a different path than you've specified--again, you
can tell this from the 'Basic Configuration' screen in the install
