Delete on inner join?

Hello,
How do I join two tables together for a delete?

ie:

delete from table1
from table1 inner join table2
on table1.something = table2.something

or

delete from table1
from table1 inner join table2
one INSTR(table1.something,table2.something) > 0?


I tried both of these and neither worked. These queries work in SQL Server.

Worth 500 points.

Thanks,
Rick
