Actually that is not accurate. The first install (http://somesite.com)  has
prefix 'wp_'. This is the initial installed site which is also the database
used by the Network. When you enable Multisite you will see all the network
table have the same base prefix 'wp_', Then when you create a new blog (
http://site1.simesite.com) it will have the prefix wp_1_, then the next (
http://site2.somesite.com) will have prefix wp_2_
