    dropping a tablespace ?

    Hi.
    i'm trying to drop a tablespace called XDB from my testing DB (9i).
    the scenario was like that :
    1. I've created a database with the database configuration assitant.
    2. this has created a tablespace called XDB for XML Stuff (irrelevant for me).
    3. I connected to the server as sys.
    4. wrote "DROP TABLESPACE XDB INCLUDING CONTENTS AND DATAFILES;".
    i got an error message :
    "ORA-29857 domain indexes and/or secondary objects exist in the tablespace".
    ok, i know that i need to drop the domain indexes (wich i dont know where are they) and secondary objects (wich i dont know what are they ?).
    i tryied to select objects from DBA/USER tables,objects,segments that are in tablespace XDB but when i tryied to drop them i got an error that the object or table/view does not exsist.
    the objects started with XDB$SOMETHING and indexes started with SYS_SOMETHING.
    1. why couldnt i dro them?
    2. what do i need to do to drop the tablespace ?
    thanks....
