Safe to delete config.msi folder?

I want to make some cleanup of my HD and I found a folder named Config.msi (a win98 folder?) that take up a lot of space. It contains many .rbf files. Is it safe to delete that folder or is it needed for Win98 to run properly?

Those can be the configuration files from Office 2000 or Frontpage or even from the new Microsoft Windows Installer. What you do is move the folder to the recycle bin, but don't delete it right away. Putting them in the recycle bin will prevent other applications from acessing them and should any application require access you will see an error at which point you can restore the folder.

Config.msi is used frequently by the Office 2000 installer. If you choose a program or add-on to run, but all of its components were not installed initially, (msi) has a list of what was installed and from which CD in the group.

If you need more, let me know!
