I am attempting to install CiviCRM on a Drupal site. I am very new to working with and implementing Drupal. I have followed the CiviCRM install guide and keep getting the following error:

•      warning: include_once(sites/default/civicrm.settings.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mysite/public_html/lpdb/modules/civicrm/drupal/civicrm.module on line 248.
•      warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening 'sites/default/civicrm.settings.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mysite/public_html/lpdb/modules/civicrm/drupal/civicrm.module on line 248.
Oops! - The CiviCRM settings file (civicrm.settings.php) was not found in the expected location (sites/default/civicrm.settings.php).

Also - should I have installed CiviCRM in its own MySQL database?
