Can I delete them?

After re installing Windows XP these folders at C:\Document and Settings
were created:

All Users.Windows
Default Users.Windows
Local Service.NT Authority
Network Service.NT Authority

Can I delete them?
How are they used?
There are the same folders without the ".Windows" and "NT.Authority" end
why?

Nope, those are now your actual, currently used files.
During the reinstall of XP it tried to create its normal All Users etc.
folders, but since they already existed it created them with the suffix they
now have and uses them as the most recent (ie. current) ones.

You can try and trick the system into using the old ones, but it involves
quite a bit of changes in the registry and my experience so far has been not
totally satisfactory.
YMMV
