Boot list...old version

I installed Redhat not too long ago. My second boot or so prompted me (through rhn) to upgrade the kernel version. I did so, and am now using 2.4.20-13.9. However, both 20-13.9 and 20-8 are in the boot list. Since I only use 13.9, I want to get rid of 8. How do I do this?

Welcome to,

You can remove the old entries from your boot loader configuration file (/etc/grub.conf or /etc/lilo.conf). With lilo, you have to run /sbin/lilo for the changes to take affect.
