[SOLVED] My System was dual-boot, but a third option appeared by itself. Why?

I don't use fedora. In ubuntu there is a mechanism which creates the menu entries automatically. The mechanism is controlled by the file /boot/grub/menu.lst (the same file, where the grub menu is configured).
Please paste a copy of your /boot/grub/menu.lst here. Maybe I can help you then.
Your kernel has been updated from 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 to 220.127.116.11-78.2.56.fc9.i686
Your grub menu has been updated so you have the option to use the old kernel if the new one causes you any problems (unlikely).
If you are happy with the new kernel, you are free to remove the old one, which will free up maybe 8MB of HDD space.
I usually just do "rpm -qa | grep kernel" and then use "rpm -e" to remove any old kernel(s) that I don't want (since you have multiple versions installed, you will need to specify which version you wish to remove. I thinkyou can do this through yum or the GUI package manager, but I generally just use rpm on the command line.
