Hey there, I'm setting up my first bpress test install and right after I
switched over to the bpress theme, I received this error.  Do I not have the
buddypress tables installed?  I wondered about that.

How do I fix this?

The install instructions are somewhat vague about how the buddypress tables
are installed.  Instead of having them be automatically isntalled at some
indeterminate point when I log in, what if I had a button I could press to
install them from the admin?
