Hello
I just upgrade the Kernel of RH 7.3. When I reboot a computer I see the choice between old and new kernel: OLD: 2.4.18.3 NEW: 2.4.18.10.
Is it possbile to remove the old kernel? If so how? Or it's good idea to keep it?
Thanks

In general it's always a good idea to keep a few old, known-working kernels around. Just in case you suddenly find something wrong (say a device doesn't work) with the new one.
I would suggest that you make the new one the default in LILO (or whichever boot loader you use), so that an unattended reboot won't accidentally throw you back in time.
