In preparation for installing the .NET Framework 1.1 onto a new server, I
need to also install it onto my edge server.  The edge server is getting
rather low in disk space, so I am looking to see what I can safely remove
from it.  Is it safe to delete any of those folders and contents under
C:\WinNT\$NtUninstallKBnnnnnn$ or C:\WinNT\$NtUninstallQnnnnnn$ folders?

If you're not sure what to remove, perhaps you should consider just compressing some stuff?

Unfortunately, the C drive is already compressed.

Hmm, well you could buy a bigger drive, transfer it using image software then expand it using something like partition magic, or just add two drives and make everything a dynamic software raid-5 array.

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you know, in 
most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest constraint to scaling up?!
