Default Weird Problem - Can't Delete Folder

Alright, heres the story. I downloaded the 3 discs for Mandrake 10. I have them on my desktop. I unzipped the first cd, then the 2nd. For some reason, the 2nd got screwed up and within that folder I have a Mandrake foler, one inside that, another inside that....on and on and on. Finally, there is one last Mandrake folder, with a bunch of files.

When I go to delete this it says:

Quote:
Cannot delete ADJTIM!1.RPM: Cannot find the specified file
Make sure you specify the correct path and file name.
It wont let me delete the darn thing. Any idea what I need to do?

Oh, and the reason I am asking in this forum and not Linux, is that this is on the Win XP desktop.

Fixed. After hours of trying to fix this, I finally moved it to another directory and deleted it from there. Not sure why it wouldnt just let me delete it from there though
