redhat 9 kernel entries

I've updated my kernel 3 times so now when I boot up there are 3 options (actually 4 because I have a windows partition) to boot to. How do I get rid of the older kernel entries?

edit your grub.conf or lilo.conf file whichever bootloader you use and remove the entries, by the way they are located in the /etc folder...and if you feel the need of removing the source its located in /usr/src
PS--> make sure if you do this step that you remove the proper ones, cause there is no turning back

Also when upgrading kernels, use rpm -Uvh instead of -ivh because that way grub.conf will get updated automatically, otherwise you'll end up with as many kernels as you have installed on /boot and /usr/src, and their respective entries on /etc/grub.conf
