[Emerald] Device already exists.

Our SQL server got rebooted during the creation of the Emerald db (don't
ask). Now there is no Emerald DB but when I try to create one, it says that
the emeraldev and emeraldlog devices already exist. I checked in SQL Exec
Mgr and was not able to locate the devices (again the Emerald database does
not exist) and the C:\MSSQL7\data\EmerDev and C:\MSSQL7\data\EmerLog files
do not exist. How do I fix it so that the database creation program doesn't
think that the devices already exist?
