    I know how to change directory and all that, but how do you delete something.

    Ive tried del and delete but nothing seems 2 be working.

    Use 'rm' to delete files & 'rmdir' to delete directories. Can see 'rm --help' for detailed list of options.

    ^Mirror1's command for deleting directories is correct too. 'r' deletes directories & 'f' force deletes files/directories.
