Enlarge /boot file system to update kernel


I'm getting this error when I try to update kernel-smp on my RHEL 4 server:

Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: rhel-i386-es-4...

Name Version Rel
----------------------------------------------------------
kernel-smp 2.6.9 55.0.9.EL i686


Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
########################################
RPM package conflict error. The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
installing package kernel-smp-2.6.9-55.0.9.EL needs 2MB on the /boot filesystem


HOW DO I FIX THIS???
