If I take a look at the Setup Bootstrap logfiles, they take up 370MB. Can I remove these without causing problems in the future?

Yep, just there for your info ...
You're talking about the files, which are by default in this folder:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG (and subfolders Files and Hotfix)
and all have the .log extension ?

Save to delete ...

Hope this helps ...
