I want to upgrade to 32-bit 11.10 but I can't seem to get rid of Ubuntu 10.04. I have Windows 7 but no admin rights, so I can't remove it, and the admin won't do it because he doesn't know what he's doing.

If you just begin the 11.10 install, you can choose to overwrite the old partition with 10.04. No need to uninstall it first.

If you are going to install from CD or USB, boot from that media and when the installer asks, choose replace existing Linux system. If from wubi, I would guess that you need administrative rights on the computer.
