Fix installer about 'Table Prefix'

Install text: If you want to run multiple WordPress installations in a single database, change this.

Your text make you think you can 'leave it empty', but that is wrong.

And wiping it and proceding will result in an Error:
ERROR: "Table Prefix" must not be empty.
and while stepping back all your previously 'entered' data is lost.

Why is it a 'must' to have a 'Table Prefix' ???
IMHO it is nonsesne to insist on having a 'Table Prefix' on a single WordPress installation.

Hello computersalat and welcome to Trac!

WordPress do not support an empty table prefix, even if it works for a single install.
