Using RH3 with most recent kernel.  When I try to remove a directory (rm -rf directory-a)
it comes back with 'cannot remove, file too large' and gives me the name of a file which i can't remove either.
if i issue ls, i'll also get the 'file too large' message.
How do I get rid of these? There are two.
