Remove Source Files from Server

I downloaded and untarred the latest version of Samba (3.0.2a)
to on a Solaris 8 system. I ran ./configure and it was partially successful but never enough to create a successful build. I did not proceed beyond the ./configure stage.

Since I found another workaround, I no longer need
the Samba files I have on this server. Can someone please tell me the best
way to remove them? Will just deleting the directory structure (/install/samba...) I created for the Samba install do the trick?

Yes, that should do it. rm -rf /install/samba should remove the entire directory tree without prompting for each file and directory.
