removing all .ini files from a directory structure [solved]

I moved all of my music files over from my windows partition and windows media player left a bunch of .ini files, so how would I delete all of them with one command.

find /root/music -name *.ini

That finds all the files that need to be deleted but I can't figure out the rm command that I would run afterwards.

naaaaaaah!

find /root/music -name *.ini -exec rm {} ;

-exec will run the command straight away

find /root/music -name *.ini -ok rm {} ;

-ok you have to use y/n confirmation

in both cases {} is the filename passed along
