you use yum to uninstall it

not even on MS windows do you "move it to trash" to uninstall software

or if you built it you need to be root to run the "make uninstall" command in the source folder

also be advised
Fedora 17 is now 3 versions out of date and a year out of date

fedora ONLY supports the current version and the one preceding that
Fedora 19 and Fedora 20

fedora 17 has not had any security updates in almost a year

You would NOT run a Microsoft OS that did not have the LAST YEARS WORTH of updates installed !!!!!
So please DO NOT !!!!!!!!! do that with a liniux OS

@evanjalin : Welcome to LQ.

How to delete an "ns-allinone-2.35/" that was unpacked with root :
1) $ su <enter-password>
2) # rm -rf ns-allinone-2.35

... And do not unpack anything ns2 with root !
The default ns2 build location is /home/evanjalin/,
.. where you must unpack with $ tar xvf ns-allinone-2.xx.tar.gz

P.S. : Also remember to delete any *PATH text that was added to .bashrc :
In /home/evanjalin/.bashrc , and /root/.bashrc

Note :
No ns2 *PATH text is to be added to any .bashrc , when it's your computer.
( Added only when the computer is owned by e.g. the University.)
