I created a link using "ln -s pointto.zip alias.zip" however, now I would like to delete the link I created.  I can delete the "real" file, however, how do I get rid of the link?

In the same way as every other file:
rm alias.zip

If this does not work, could you give more information about why it doesn't work please?
