Oder of booting after upgrades in Fedora 7

I have been using Fedora 7 for over a year on a dual boot system.
Boots Fedor 7 and Vista Home Premium. I finally got tired of seeing the New Security update pop up after loading Firefox.
So last PM I clicked to download and install the whole list. After this took place and I clicked on update, I rebooted only to see Grub giving me 3 boot selections based on these kernels:
the 2007..or original kernel: 2.6.21 -1.3194.fct and a new one -88.fct which came out in 2008 I believe.
So my question is: Can I go into Grub and disable or delete the 2007 version and then get back to where I just see 2 choices when grub first comes up and asks for which system you want to boot?

Thanks in advance for any help. :-)

Not with GRUB, but your package manager, YUM and it's GUI, should take care of the problem.
Go into your GUI package-manager and search for "linux-image" and pick the older entries, they will look like "linux-image-X.X.X.X" and delete them. Just be sure not to delete all of them, or you want have a system anymore.
