What exactly is the command you are trying to use to remove/rename/etc it? (rm /tmp or /rm /mnt/tmp?) Did you know that to remove a directory, you should use rmdir, and not rm? There is also "rm -d <directory>", but that is limited to root, and should be used with care. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
