    I guess updates count as installation.

    Since about 2.0, the auto-update has not worked on my primary blog, so I've been updating manually. Does anyone know if I can delete any of those old "version" files? (I'm not sure if they actually do something at this point, or if they are just the packages that unzip files to elsewhere in the installation and are now extraneous.)

    It would be okay to delete the previous files if they are erraneous and are no longer in use, the main thing that you would like to keep in tact is the database for your WordPress site. You will want to back it up and make sure that an update does not make the database erraneous.
