Why can't I install Vanilla?

I followed the install instructions contained in the 2.5 Vanilla download but the install page does not show. One instruction puzzle me it says "Confirm the cache, conf, and uploads folders are writable by PHP." What does it mean? I use 777 on the files I have a good server with all the requirements. Inside the cache and the conf folders there is htaccess "deny all". I remove it but still no install page on my browser. Does anyone know what to do? Thanks
