Delete Files in Win NT Server

I have a server running Windows 2000 Server operating system. The C-drive partition was setup as 4GB and I am running low on space.
There are bunch of folders/files under the WINNT folder that appear to be updates of some kind. The folder names are all similar and look like this:
$NtUninstallKB828035$
(the numbers after the KB in the folder name seems to be the only difference)

Is it safe to delete these folders so I can gain back some drive space?
I am in desparate need to free up some space and can't do any repartitioning as this is a business server and a lot of people use it all of the time to access files on the D-partition.

Thanks in advance,
Charlie

These are all files that are created when a Microsoft Update or Patch is applied or a Service Pack. You can compare the number portion to the ones in the ADD/Remove Programs, just check the box to show updates. This way you can compare what you have and don't have and delete accordingly. Technically you could burn all those files to a disk to store in case you may need them, so you can free up some space.
