Delete old app directories?

I'm running a few Netware 6.5 SP3 servers. These servers started out as
Netware 6 or possibly 5 servers and have been upgraded over the years. The
SYS volume is fairly full on most of them. I'm looking to free up some
space by deleting some directories for software that I don't think is in use
anymore. Specifically I'm looking at deleting the Apache, novonyx,
Tomcat\33, and Tomcat\322 directories. As far as I know Netware 6.5 uses
Apache 2 and Tomcat 4.

Is it safe to delete these directories for the older versions or will it
break something like iManager or NetStorage or something like that?

Should be OK to whack them, unless for some reason you're running an old
app that is still using them. You can easily determine if apache and/or
tomcat are even loaded by doing

modules apache

and

java -show

Tomcat 4 will show as "catalina", tomcat 3.x will show as something else
.. That said, those apache and tomcat directories won't likely gain you
much space.

Another good place to look for reclaimable disk space is old service
pack backups under sys:system
