    updated kernel, 5 topics in bootloader


    Hi,
    I installed fedora core 2 5days ago. I believe my version is a bit old, and i updated the kernel from 2.6.5-1.358 to 2.6.6-1.435.2.3. However, after i installed fc2 for the first time, 2 topics appeared in the bootloader as follows:
    Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358smp)
    Fedora Core -up (2.6.5-1.35
    Others

    and now...
    Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.435.2.3)
    Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp)
    Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358smp)
    Fedora Core -up (2.6.5-1.35
    Others


    I really want to sort it out as it is very messy, and because im a newbie, i have no idea how to sort it out, can anyone help me please??

    applogises if there are similiar posts because i can't find any topics to sort my problems

    what do you mean by sort it out?if you use grub see in /etc.grub.conf ..if lilo /etc/lilo.conf..there you'll find all the information you want and editing these files you can have these sorted (if that is what u mean)

    just delete them from /etc/grub.conf or /etc/lilo.conf in case you use lilo boot loader..

    Remember to be careful what you delete in lilo.

    Once you have removed the lines you want from /etc/lilo.conf remember to run /sbin/lilo

    To re-write lilo with new settings.

    Thank you for you help, stathisx & Armage. However, after removed it from the grub bootloader, does it mean i have uninstalled the older version of kernel?
