hi there, a while ago i made two disk images to copy dvds, both are about 4.7GB. i don`t need them anymore, so i want to get rid of them completely and have the space returned to my Macintosh HD volume. i used disk utility to eject the two images, and it took lots of trying, but they seem to have dissapeared finally... but still, the 10GB of space has not returned to my HD! i guessed the disk images were still lurking somewhere, so i quickly read the Terminal manual, and booted UNIX for the first time! i used UNIX to list the contents of my mac, and found the disk images lurking in the /Volumes directory... in the /Volumes directory i have: DISK_IMAGE1.cdr DISK_IMAGE2.img Macintosh HD i tried to use the RM command to get rid of the images ( rm /Volumes/DISK_IMG1.cdr ), and it asked for confrmation... actually, i wasn`t sure how to answer so i tried `y` for yes, and got some message about the images being `read only` have i somehow screwed up and these images are actually partitions? i still don`t quite understand the whole disk image / partitions thing... SO! what i want to know is how to delete these images, and get that 10GB back to my Macintosh HD volume!!! i don`t understand a lot of computer talk, so, if someone can help me with a simple explanation, or just give me a list of commands to type to do the job, i would really, really, appreciate it! thanks!! by the way, i have a ibook G4! and what a great machine it is!
