    Why would you want to get rid of the old one, really? It's always good to have a fallback kernel in case something would be wrong with the new one.
    If you really want to, though, just remove the old kernel RPM. Just search for which versions are installed with "rpm -qa | grep ^kernel", and then remove the one with the lowest version number.

    What do you mean by "tweaking" your desktop? Which desktop do you have?

    if you do what dolda said, i think you will also need to edit /etc/grub.conf and remove it from the list as well.

    I think the RPM's uninstall script does that automatically.
