    Will this get rid of all the printer drivers I don't need, or is this a bad idea?

    No, I would not recommend that. Unless someone has a specific experience of doing it without any negative affects. I tried that under Tiger and it directly caused the system to become very unstable for some reason.

    I deleted most of it but the hp directory (I have an hp printer). No problems.

    apparently

    Apparently, if you ever need a printer driver, just plug in the printer and run software update. It will load the necessary driver.
