Hi, I am new to mac, but have some experience with several linux distributions. The only thing that annoyies me of my new Mac is that some folders that I have imported from Windows can't be deleted. I have tried it by:

- With the graphic interface (get info, you know) but I can't uncheck the "blocked" button because it says that it's only read
- So, I opened the terminal and tried the chmod command. Everything within the folder to 777 (-R). Still I couldn't delete the folder neither through the graphic interface nor through the rm command
- After reading everything in this forum, I tried the chflag command, with similar results
- I have even tried the chown command, but it didn't work either

Is ther any possibility to get rid of my stupid folder-comung-from-windows?

Thank you very much in advance.
