I've never heard that about the i386 folder. I don't think any software besides windows has anything to do with it, and it won't recover your software.
Maybe if you kept your i386 folder it would keep some windows settings...oh yeah and i think only windows 2k and later have the i386 folders, but i could easily be wrong.
i'd just wipe the sucker clean instead of keeping a few folders of settings, copying a folder of windows root settings could definately complicate things.
