I need to clear out space on this machine in order to do a defrag. I'd like to wipe the cache completely.

How should I safely do so?

You can clear the cache by stopping the web proxy service (in the ISA Server Management tool) then deleting the urlcache folder, the location of which will be specified in the cache configuration section.
Restart the Web Proxy service and the urlcache folder and it's contents will be recreated (albeit empty)

hope this helps,

Peter

p.s this assumes that you have ISA server 2000.
