GRUB boot options after update


Hello my friends
I hope i'm not annoying you with my newbie posts in this section of the forum...
anyhow, this is my problem.
after a massive Lenny update my GRUb menu now containg entries for 486, 686, AMD64 and 686 BigMem (if i remember correcly).

Is this correct? Has it happened to you too? What is the reason?
Maybe i messed up my software sources list?

here it is anyway

Code:
deb http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
deb-src http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/ lenny main

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main
deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org lenny main
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian lenny non-free
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/shames/debian-lenny/desktopfx/unstable/ ./
deb http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/repository debian/
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
thanks for any help on this matter

See what kernels you have installed. Chances are they're all listed in the /boot directory. dpkg -l | grep linux-image
