you can try:

     del /recursive flash:*

or

     del /recursive flash:/*

or just plain

   del /recursive flash:

Umm, but it looks like you don't have enought space anyway.

Your image is 1770K or  1,812,408 bytes and you only have 1,226,752 bytes. total.  

Are you sure that image is the right one?

giltjr:you are correct about the space, I will have to find a ll.2 ios version; create a Cisco CCO account but unable to access ios software section. Here is the output using del recursive :
switch: del /recursive flash:/*
Are you sure you want to delete "/recursive" (y/n)?y
File "/recursive" not deleted -- permission denied
Are you sure you want to delete "flash:/*" (y/n)?y
File "flash:/*" not deleted -- no such file or directory
switch: del recursive flash:
Are you sure you want to delete "recursive" (y/n)?y
File "recursive" not deleted -- permission denied
Are you sure you want to delete "flash:" (y/n)?
File "flash:" not deleted
switch: del recursive flash:
Are you sure you want to delete "recursive" (y/n)?y
File "recursive" not deleted -- permission denied
Are you sure you want to delete "flash:" (y/n)?y
File "flash:" not deleted -- no such file or directory
switch: del /recursive flash:*
Are you sure you want to delete "/recursive" (y/n)?y
File "/recursive" not deleted -- permission denied
Are you sure you want to delete "flash:*" (y/n)?y
File "flash:*" not deleted -- no such file or directory

Thank you lrmoore. I downloaded the image file and compied via xmodem, everything works perfect.
I now just have to purchase a more current 2924 or 2950. These I am sure will be more helpful in working towards my CCNP.  Again....thanks.
