Low on disk space after compiling new kernel.

I installed the kernel 2.6.36 into my Fedora 12 system.
I am now low on disk space.
[root at rishi-desktop kernels]# du -sh linux-2.6.36/
It shows that the new compiled kernel is taking around 4.4GB.
The /lib/modules/2.6.36 is taking around 780M on my disk.
I wanted to free some of the space occupied by the compiled code. I
understand that the /lib/modules/2.6.36 directory can't be deleted as it
contains the compiled modules.
I wanted to delete the files in /usr/src/kernel/2.6.36, without effecting my
newly installed kernel.
-> Can I delete them?
-> What is the best way to delete them, I want to keep the source files?
-> Should I run make clean to remove the compiled code?
-> Any other way?
