VTI folders family

This question of mine, was never answered fully, so I'm asking you for help.

Every time I register for web hosting (usually on Linux servers), there are lots of folders named _vti_somthing (like _vti_cnf, _vti_log, etc) sitting next to the www (or public_html) folder. I never figuered what each of them are used for, and how harmful can be the deletion of all of them.

For the sake of this example, suppose that I'm on a Linux host with CPanel installed. If any of these folders are needed by CPanel, I'd like to know that too.

these folders are used for frontpage extensions and are not needed if you arent using frontpage functionality.

Yes. As soon as I turned off fronpage extensions (from within CPanel) they were all gone.
