    When you installed linux, you should have been prompted to choose a
    "root" or "administration" password. To remove the file, pop up a
    console and type the command "su". This will then prompt you for a
    password. Enter the root/admin password you originally chose. You can
    then use "rm <filename>" to remove the file.
