[Techtalk] deleting files

I thought this was an easy question, but I asked it on another list and 
no one seems to want to answer me.  So... here's the deal.  I tried to 
install starOffice 5.2.  I had some rather bizarre problems with it, and 
they appear to be new problems every time I try it again.  I've decided 
to give up on 5.2 and try to get the 6.0 beta working.  My question is: 
can I just delete the files for 5.2?  I am pretty new to linux, and I 
just switched from M$ windows where you are supposed to "uninstall" 
instead of delete, so I want to make sure there is not some similar way 
of doing it in linux before I get rm-happy.  I have Slackware 7.1 if 
that matters....  Thanks very much in advance!
