It's more than likely going to be on your CD then if you have a CD of your distro. If not, I am sure you could find it via the ftp site. Might be a little easier finding one for your distro... But where's the fun in that
You remove something by going into the map where you installed it originally and typ make clean or make uninstall.
Removing RPM's is rpm -e <name of rpm>.
If you don't have the map anymore, reinstall it, so untar, ./configure, make and then make clean or make uninstall.
If you don't know the name of the rpm querry all the rpm's on your system using rpm --aq >> /root/rpms goto /root and look at the rpms file. the name of your installed rpm should be listed somewhere.
