Question How to remove old kernel?


I'm quite new to linux, well...i finally manage to get Redhat to dual boot with Winxp with GRUB. I can't do it in LILO.

Anyway, i got registered with Redhat Network, it got a feature that's like some sort of Windows Update utiliy, that log me to Redhat Network and allow me to update.

I updated all the avaliable packages with a new kernel, the new kernel is much more stable, GNOME hangs alot with the older kernel.

Now I ended up with two kernel to boot, how do I remove the older Kernel?
