Angry Help multiple partitions


So Im new to linux...and I love it, but I still use vista frequently.


Im having a problem though...



When I turn my laptop on there are like 6 different ubuntu buttons/selections...
obviously three of them are ubuntu, and three of them are recovery partitions?


I guess what I am asking is how to remove multiple Ubuntu partitions...I dont need three of four, just one

I am hoping the end result will be a standard DUAL boot pc

not like a quadruple boot pc

Let's see the ouput of these commands
Code:
sudo fdisk -l
grep -Ev "(^#|^\s*$)" /boot/grub/menu.lst

The excess ones are probably just older kernels left over after a kernel update. Check your /boot/grub/menu.lst - you can simply delete the entries for the older ones (that is, if you are sure that the most recent one works fine).
