It is a BAD IDEA to delete files from your repository.  You should never
need to touch the repository or any files within it (unless directed to
by a person who wrote it or the manual).

If files are checked out read-only it is most likely that they are
marked exclusive.  Some versions of TortoiseCVS automatically does that
to binary files.  Search the TortoiseCVS newsgroup for several hundred
previous posts on the subject...
