    I'm trying to remove the System Folder (OS9) as per this http://tinyurl.com/ld8ce however when I enter single user mode and type into terminal

    $ mount -uw /

    I get the message - sh: $: command not found.

    What am I doing wrong?

    This is the full command I'm hoping to implement

    $ mount -uw /
    $ cd /
    $ rm -rf 'System Folder'

    I don't know why that isn't working for you, but I find that site to be a bit outdated. HOWEVER, in the mean time, DON'T SCREW AROUND. Someone erased their whole OS X install earlier today by messing a space up in terminal. BAD MOVE if you don't know exactly what to do.

    er...that could have been me (insert embarrassed smiley face here)

    it appears that if I do it right there should be no problem. So why isn't it working?
