This is a hard way to learn.
IMHO, you should never delete files that you are not 100% certain of
their purpose/usage.

It is much better to do something like
	yum provides </path/to/file>
then look at the output so you can tell what packages put the file
there.
You then need to try a "yum remove <package>" and see what other
packages it may want to remove for dependencies so you have a chance to
decide whether you really should delete it or not.
