MySQL backup won't import

I can't get a backup of MySQL from one host to import on another. I get this error:

SQL query:

# WordPress MySQL database backup
# Generated: Saturday 27. March 2010 18:57 EDT
# Hostname:
# Database:
# --------------------------------------------------------
# --------------------------------------------------------
# Table: `wp_comments`
# --------------------------------------------------------
# Delete any existing table `wp_comments`
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS  `wp_comments` ;

I made another backup, but without the wp_comments table, but when I try to import that, it says the next table name should be dropped. This database is working fine where it is.
