Not expert response just a google search, this may be of use; click here

It appears that 3.0 requires 2.0, if you have 2.0 you don't need 1.1

.Net is a programming language. Programs written in this language require the framework to be installed in order to run. Over time programs have been written for version 1.1; 2 and 3, so don't remove any of them. Programs written for version 1.1 won't run under version 2 etc...etc...
