Can't delete some files...

I'm using RH 8.

I have mounted a NTFS partition and copy some files to my linux partition. Those files were .ogg and some of them have special characters like ,,.... and now a can't delete them, even at root.
The OS said that the file doest exits (using KDE) buy i can see them....

I really need to delete these files....

Thanks in advance.

Can you do anything to them? Can you rename the files?

Whell, thanks to a friend a can fix it.....

It seams to be that these strange files have only read access to the root, i tried to use chmod 777 when i have to use 666.....

then a can delete them at the shell using rm *.ogg .....
