The --initialize option is intended only for when you're setting up a brand-new MySQL instance that as yet has no databases at all. It's failing because MySQL is *already* initialised with the system and other default databases. If you really want to remove one specific database, the way to do this is to execute a DROP DATABASE name statement in the mysql client. See in the MySQL Manual for info on how to use this statement.

And please mind your manners. Peter is quite knowledgeable about MySQL, and you can be pretty sure he's not asking the questions he's asking merely to pass the time of day, so perhaps you should let him help you by answering them.
