2. c:\winnt\temp\ - all contents

to be on the safe side use the cleanup program provided by win2000 if you are unsure whether this file could be deleted. For those files under the temp folder it is safe to delete. I would really recommend you to delete the log file ,after all it dont take up alot of space. For config.msi it is a installation folder.
