Okay, maybe I'm just stupid, but I'm having trouble deleteing roms from my Elink card. The only option I see is "delete end", which just removes the most recently added rom, and I can't seem to move them around. Can anyone help me out here?

In the review it says that you can't delete game. They say that you can only replace the games (If they are over the size of the current rom then it won't work). Or you have to delete all of the games to get rid of that one. Pretty odd and stupid way to make software.

If the Elink is a NOR-based card, then that behavior is standard. NOR flash cannot be manipulated nearly as easily as NAND-based flash devices like SD cards and USB thumb drives. With NOR, you cannot delete individual entries to regain space unless they're at the very end of the cart. I don't know much about the Elink though, so I don't really know if this info is accurate.
