    is the index that you are trying to drop a Primary Key index for the
    table? can you drop the tmp table when it is done or do you exhaust
    your disk space trying to drop the index?

    I run out of diskspace before it is done. As far as I can read from the
    mysql doentation an "ALTER" statement causes the table to copied to the
    altered or something like that... The type of the indexes I want to delete
    are INDEX - it is not the primary key.

    Sounds like the solution I'll go for - hope I cam make mysqldump work
    being a windows guy :) And that the mysqldump can handle 6 GB of data...
