Kernel Versions


I have 4 kernels in my Grub Loader, How do I take off the ones that I dont want? The Reason I have 4 is because they are updates.
One other thing, How do I make it so that it never times out and boots into Linux without me hitting return on anything? Thanks for any help/suggestions

Edit your grub.conf file.

Hi, go ahead and post it here, that will help someone to let you know what to edit. Usually it's just a matter of removing or commenting out the old entries.

Cool

Code:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,1)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
password --md5 $1$mXs��$bdEuhqpOgQmEWvEFpqB9G/
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-19.8.0)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-19.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.18-19.8.0.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-18.8.0)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-18.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.18-18.8.0.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
	root (hd0,1)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
	initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title DOS
	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
	chainloader +1
Do I just simply delete the other Kernels? Even If I do remove the old kernel versions from the Grub.conf, wouldn't it still be on the hard drive? if so, how do I remove them?
One other thing, the "timeout", I dont like that, I just want it to sit there doing nothing until i specify what I want to boot into. Do I have to put the time out as " -1 " ??

Thanks for any help, appreciate it.

i'm in the same spot as mr. vision. yeah sure i can edit the grub.conf file, but what do i delete? and what about the unused kernals and their associated garbage on the hd's?

the trouble is that there's lots of doc's about upgrading, but nothing that i can find about what to do after.

thanks. Wlt.
