If you want to re-install the forum, you can just run the install again, that will over write your old files as well as clear the MySQL from any old data.

If you want to remove the old install and make an install into a new directory, send me your GLOBALS.php and I'll tell you want to do.

Hmm... You'll need to remove 2 directories, the forum directory in your browseable dir, where all the viewable files are kept and then the directory where all the forum data is kept.

The reason is because the webserver is the "owner" of the files.

However, since you are the owner of the directory structure, you can chmod things back so that you may edit the files.

For Example:
My forum data was installed into /home/forum/forum/, my styles in stored inside /home/forum/forum/styles/. The directory /home/forum/forum/ is owned by nobody:nobody (user:group), while I am user (myuser:mygroup). Here is what I do:

This makes me the owner of those directories
chown myuser:mygroup /home/forum/forum/ /home/forum/forum/styles/

Give 666 permissions to all files inside styles/ directory so webserver can edit them.
chmod 666 /home/forum/forum/styles/*

if you do not have a shell account, simply write a php script, and put 2nd command I've listed inside exec() or system() call.

To remove a file you can use php's unlink() command and to remove a directory you can use rmdir() command.
