A cool thing about grub is you don't have to do something
like run /sbin/lilo to make changes take effect. You can just
remove the entries of the new kernels from the grub config
file, menu.lst.
    If you use RPM to update the kernel (I never tried it),
and you want to remove the old kernels, I think you could
uninstall like usual and if the old kernels still appear
in the menu, then edit as above. Grub docs are good,
so look at them. Perhaps make a grub boot floppy, then you
needn't worry too much.
