I can't rm that file, no such file message is created!
It could be a corrupt filesystem. Is there anything in dmesg about your disks/filesystems?
do you know what created the file in the first place?
you can also use "smartctl -H /dev/*" on your disks to get a quick heath assessment.
it might be a good idea to boot into rescue mode (via a Live Linux CD) and fsck the partition(s). I like SysRescuCD
for this type of thing. But you can just boot into runlevel 1 if you want, provided that the partitions you want to fsck are not your / partition. You may want to attempt to back up any files first, before you fsck - although, chances are you wont be able to get them off if they are fubar.
