comment Deleting Time Machine in Mac OS X 10.6.4
If you are logged in as root and it gives you operation not allowed, then there’s some other error. Could be physical or logical in the drive/volume that holds the TimeMachine backup. As an alternative, boot from the install DVD, start DISK utility and try performing verify/repair on the volume that has time machine. See if it fixes something.

But did you log AS root. In that case sudo won’t be necessary. That’s the idea of enabling root in the first place. Sudo doesn’t transform you into root, it elevates your privileges. Enable root, logoff, login as root (it should appear in the Login Screen) and try the rm -rf command without sudo. Beware, under root you can make nasty mistakes and bring your whole OS down to its knees.

comment How to display scrolling bars on a VNC client?
@Patrick yes, I see what you mean. You can give it one more try by using the built in OSX VNC client: Screen Sharing. It won’t show up in spotlight because it’s mysteriously hidden in /System/Library/CoreServices. Give it a try.

Regarding the copy/paste, if the remote box is Windows (or linux), I believe you’ll have to do CTRL-C/V respectively.

comment How to display scrolling bars on a VNC client?
@Patrick the mouse panning follows the mouse pointer, and it’s intended to allow you to “view” remote computers that have a bigger resolution than yours, avoiding the annoying scroll bars. It consists of a “zoomed area” (you can define de size) and when you move your mouse to one side (for example) the zoomed area will move with you. If the remote computer has a 1024x768 resolution and your computer is on a 1900x1200 display, you’ll not see the effect in action.
