.NET Framework 1.1 and .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB886903)?

I have a development machine (Windows XP SP2, all security updates/fixes,
20GB C partition, 60GB D partition) with Visual Studio 2003 and 2005
installed (I do dev work in both). I already have SP1 for .NET 1.1 and
VS2003 installed, but I want to install the latest SP1 release for Visual
Studio 2005, but it requires 6+GB of space on the C: drive. The problem is
that I only have about 4GB available on my C partition, so I am trying to
clean up.

On my development machine , I have two items listed in my Add/Remove
programs list:

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB886903)

Each of these take up about 1 GB each.

It sounds odd that in order to run the 1.1. framework (with sp1), I need
2+GB of storage.

Can I remove one of these components to free up some space WITHOUT affecting
the installation of 1.1 SP1?

Any other ideas for making some room (I have done all the standard stuff
like cleanmgr, etc.)??? I also have SQL Server 2005 installed, but all the
data files are on my D partition, not the default C drive.
