Well, "remove" alone might do you no good.  You need to use "purge",
otherwise configuration data is kept.

Funny that it installed on port 9673 (which is what I expected for a
Debian-based distro) because when I reinstalled everything last week, it
installed on the non-Debian default of 8081.  Perhaps the install scripts
use 8081 if  nothing else does.  I used to have a server on 8081, so
perhaps that's the difference.

Try using the username 'admin' but the password you gave to the plone-site
config.  My administrator password is definitely the one I gave in the
pre-config stage, but I was pretty sure I didn't use 'admin' for the
username - but that's what it is.

I'm really hoping you get this working, because then I have a few problems
of my own I want to bounce off you :-)
