Help with Profile`


I am trying to repair my profile on a Win2k Box using Knoppix STD. I need to totally delete the profile, but it won't let me. Does anyone know how to do this?

I am able to mount and view the folder, when I attempt to rm any file, it tells me that the operation is not permitted.

Help me Linux Community, You're my only hope.

This is not a Windows support forum.

That being said, you should do this in Windows. Deleting the profile directory does not delete the profile. You need to delete the profile under another administrative user account with the System applet in Control Panel.

Well, let me put it this way:

1) I don't have access to my computer under Admin.

2) I was attempting to Utilize the Live CD and mount commands inherent to knoppix ( which is Linux, by the way )

3) Simply deleting the folder has worked in the past.

1+2+3= the reason I posted this in the first place
