Angry apt-get, Kernel, and grub question

Ok, I am running Red Hat 9, I used apt-get to get my kernel update (2.4.20-20.9) and it all went good! But, now when I boot up, Grub has both versions of Red Hat 9 Kernel listed! Why it do that? And should I just delete the old kernel listing? (if so how?) Thanks!

it keeps your old kernel just in case anything goes wrong with the new one you can go back and troubleshoot. I would suggest deffinetly keeping it in your grub. It is always good to have just in case u seriously mess up, i know i do haha.
