wanted to uninstall 11.10.....First of all I have admin privaleges...first I got "permission denied" when trying to uninstall it....then I just tried uninstalling manually, deleting all related files, but it still shows up in boot menu.....and when I tried installing a different (older) ubuntu version, it told me the old one was still there....but once again I could not uninstall it, same error.

anyway, I just need a clear way to manually uninstall+delete a ubuntu install, if that is easier than trying to figure out why I couldn't do it normally.
