what distro? how did you install the new kernel? please provide some useful information. general if it's rpm based, you can safely "rpm -e kernel-2.4.whatever", if it was a source install, just delete the kernel image directly.

Since you use Debian, you probably installed a .deb package. So simply open aptitude and purge the package of the right kernel.
