This isn't for sure or anything, but when you install programs they create a folder to store the installation files.
At a later date you may wish to modify your installation.
For example remove or add new files.
But, if you remove the temporary installation files then this feature may no longer be available to you.
Kind of like the temp files for the windows installation. (Notice it doesn't ask you for the cd to add new features?)
It is because some .cab files are stored on the computer in a temp capacity for your windows application installations.
I believe this is true for programs and how they use your temp folder.
If you don't want to use this feature then by all means delete this folder.
Another point though. I think if the folder isn't there it will prompt for the cd if it exists. If it didn't then you gotta reinstall the program.
Yes, it is safe to delete the contents of both:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp
