rm -R /Users/shortname/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Music/name-of-artist
Where shortname is your short user name.
name-of-artist is the name of the artist you wish to remove.
The name is case sensitive and if it contains spaces you will need
to escape them e.g. "The\ Beatles".
*If you get the command wrong you can do major damage...*
Work out what you think the command should be and post it here to
see if there is anything obviously wrong with it -- just to be sure.
Please post the command you are using...
ls -al /Users
will list the user directories. Just keep adding bits to the end
of this command to get further down the directory structure.
When typing the names, you can type the first few characters then
press the <Tab> key and it should complete the name for you.

Could this be because I'm in -bash-3.2#?? It used to say jimmyandretta/something, but when I was trying to fix another problem before this happened, it stopped saying that and started just saying the bash thing....
I'm so lost here! I just want to move everything to an external hard drive and restart if possible.
Would that be possible?
I'll do ANYTHING to just get this thing running again.
I'm booting from the Install CD as the blue screen kept shutting my computer down at about 10% of the loading bar; I'm in terminal and the entries on the right most side include
Install Mac OS X.app
etc -> private/etc
tmp -> private/tmp
var -> private/var
I can't cut/paste as I'm using a friend's laptop right now.. but those are the things on the right-most side.
Dave you're the best for walking me through this.
