The old kernel is usually left as a backup in case there is a problem with the new kernel, once you have tested the new kernel you can safely delete the old one.

Re: Linux Kernel. help please!!!

you can use both kernels. Update /etc/lilo.conf or /etc/grub.conf and add your new kernel with diferent name.
