    Can't delete directory!!


    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if somebody could help me.
    There is this directory I want to delete and everything inside it.

    Logged as root, I type: rm -r FE
    and I get: rm: descend into directory `FE'?

    It doesn't let me delete it. Does anyone know what's wrong?

    Thank you guys!!!
