Question related to Fedora upgradation

I have been using fedora since a long. Lastly I upgraded it to 8 from 7 and now from 8 to 9. Now the question is y does it keep older rpms and noarchs. I mean still there have been .fc7.i386 and .fc8.i386 packages. Are they necesary to keep ? If i remove them then wud they arise any problem ?

Thanks in advance.

You can run "yum remove packagename" on them one at a time. It will tell you if it can be cleanly removed without affecting anything else. If it gives you a list of packages it will need to remove because they depend on the one you are asking to remove, then you can answer no, and it won't remove them.
