no sound in fedora core 2-fixed

I had exactly the same problem with my system. Just a few moments ago, I ran update and that changed my system from kernel 2.6.5-1 to 2.6.9-1.6. Now my sound works fine and seems to be all fixed. Now, all I have to do is figure out why it changed my printer to a postscript printer. I managed to change the printer back to the correct one in everything except Mozilla. Can anyone tell me how to do that? Also, I could use a few instructions about how to get rid of the old kernel that is still showing on the grub loader. Thanks.
