Link problem please help


I have had a problem with creating a link called linux that is supposed to point to linux-2.4.20-8 but I put linux-2.4.20-6 by mistake.

I was using the command ln -s linux-2.4.20-6
now it shows the link but it points wrong

What command do I use to delete this link, or at least edit it?

Just use rm as if it was a file:
rm /path/file
