I did a similar thing -- tried to make a shortcut to a folder
on a FAT32 partition, and copied it instead. You can just right
click on the file and click properties. On the permissions tab,
make sure you have write permission (give everybody write permission 
if you want, it doesn't matter), and then you can delete it. 
It takes a while if you did it on a lot of files, but it's less
scary than deleting things as root if you're not used to doing 
things at a command line.
