SCCM Drive full.  Want to uninstall.

I installed SCCM onto a virtual server with a 32 GB hard drive thinking I was going to have enough space.  Now the drive is full.  SCCM is not functional.  There are hundreds of thousands of files in the inbox directories even after I've migrated the actual database to another server.  There is 0 free space on the hard drive and I can't even start the SCCM console anymore.  

At this point I'm going for training on the product after next week and I think my best plan is to completely remove this install and start over fresh when I return.  Does anyone have a good resources or some advice on the best way to go about this.  I can't push anything through SCCM itself since it won't even start, and explorer dies if I try to even delete the files in the inboxes to relieve the space problem to start the console.  Nevermind what it would actually do to the functioning of SCCM if I were to delete those files successfully.

Load the SCCM install CD onto a network share and then run a psexec \\%server% \\%share%\SMSSETUP\BIN\I386\setup.exe /deinstall

That will uninstall the site remotely.

What will be the effect on the clients on all the workstations?  When I go to reinstall SCCM will I just be able to push the client down to them again and overwrite the other site settings?

If you are able to contact all the clients, yes, you can send a remote install with an updated site code and MP if they are hardcoded for the site you are taking down.
