My WINNT folder was from Windows 2000. I installed XP Pro sometime later and was pretty sure I didn't need WINNT any more, but just removing it was scary.
After a while, I renamed WINNT to WINNT.OLD and ran that for a while with no issues. Then I moved WINNT.OLD to a second drive (so far so good!), then I finally just removed it to free up a couple gigs of space. It took me about a month to get through all that - I am such a chicken sometimes.
I don't know about your situation, but the WINNT stuff was still in my boot.ini file after the upgrade and offered to me at startup, and I never chose it, so I finally just removed it from my boot.ini and now WINNT is totally RIP.
