Yes, use
rm -r /path/to/directory
rm -rf /path/to/directory
The first will ask for each file to delete, the latter will just
silently delete them. Warning: There is no (easy) undelete, and no
reecycle bin! You need to have sufficient privileges for the files and
directories, I guess you need to be root. *Be careful*!
