save to delete /usr/src/kernels ?

hy, i am trying to free as much space on my fedora8-image as possible. so i wonder if it is safe to delete /usr/src/kernels, in my install? in this dir i have the sources, but i assume as the kernel is provide from outside the file system i wont need the sources neither ?

is there anything else i can safely delete that is not needed in uml?

You can certainly remove kernel sources. You should be able to remove kernel images, as well. Use RPM to do this, don't just go deleting files.
