Well newbie, if you are uninstalling something that was made from the source (i.e, a file you downloaded that was named foobar.tar.gz, and you compiled it using the 'make' command) you can cd into the directory of the source where the "Makefile" is located and type "uninstall {filename}", if you're using RPM's then you can type (as root) rpm -e or rpm --uninstall {packagename}.
