how to uninstall Linux kernel


Hi,
I am using RHEL5. I have compiled and installed a new kernel- 2.6.35.11. How do I uninstall it completely from my system.

You should be able to reboot into a previous kernel, then manually remove it from /boot/ and reflect the changes to your bootloader. Are you using grub?
