    You should be able to use the Konqueror file manager to delete files in your /home directory. To delete other files, you'll probably need to su to root. Once there you can use the rm command to delete files.

    You need to be in File Manager - Super User mode.

    You could just delete the partitions, or reformat them.

    You could also try as root:

    Code:
    rm -rf /*
