Don't confuse .NET Framework with the XP Service Pack, they are completely separate packages. The short answer is - NO, do NOT delete them.

If you really insist then the best way is to do a full reload of your system and only install the latest updates. In many cases they updates will contain the bulk of the earlier updates.

I would only do that if there is some pretty big problem
