Hi Fran,

the extension dam_frontend requires that dam is installed but at  first 
uninstalling is the best because else you can't use the interface to 
install dam ;)

Here we go:
1) with a FTP-Program like Filezilla you fetch your current 
configuration-file: /typo3conf/localconf.php

2) Open the filecopy and search for ",dam_frontend" - remove it always 
you find it. It's part of the list for the variables 
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['EXT']['extList_FE'] and perhaps 

The lists include all loaded extensions separated by comma. So you just 
have to take care that you don't connect two other extensions by removing.

3) Upload the changed file again and overwrite the old one on the server.

Afterwards you should (if desired) 1st install "dam" and 2nd 
"dam_frontend" again.
