Access is Denied (os.remove)

I'm trying to create a DDP export to PDF script that uses the ESRI Example from South Kingstown, RI, and when I run my script I get this error:

Runtime error  Traceback (most recent call last):   File "<string>", line 17, in <module> WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied: 'R:\\GIS\\...\\PDF'


I thinks due to this bit of code:
if multiPage == "true":     if os.path.exists(outputPDF):         os.remove(outputPDF)      #Create new FinalMapBook that results will be appeneded into     finalMapBook = arcpy.mapping.PDFDocumentCreate(outputPDF)


I have full access to the drive and the folder.  I tried my local drive and I get the same error.  Any ideas?
