Moving LogFiles Folder

I've recently discovered there was no logfile management utility on the web server I just took over so the C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles folder had grown to over 4GB. This may be a silly question but is it safe to assume that I can just move that folder to another drive and redirect the pointer in IIS 6 to continue keeping them there?

That would stop the folder from continuing to grow but I don't know if the move would hose up anything else.

Thanks,
Webby
