how to delete kernels RH 9 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have upgraded the RH 9 kernel now so often that I want to delete some of the oldest. Can I simply do: rmp -e kernel-2.4.20-8 and do I have to edit the grub.conf file next, to inform grub that I have deleted kernel-2.4.20-8, or is this updated automatically? Thanks for your advice.

    Default how to delete kernels RH 9

    I have upgraded the RH 9 kernel now so often that I want to delete
    some of the oldest. Can I simply do:

    rmp -e kernel-2.4.20-8

    and do I have to edit the grub.conf file next, to inform grub that I
    have deleted kernel-2.4.20-8, or is this updated automatically?

    Thanks for your advice.

    RedHat tries very, very hard to automate this stuff. The RPM's do a bunch of
    automagical manipulations of /boot/grub/grub.conf (where the /etc/grub.conf
    file links to!), that try to gracefully remove and add new kernels. Take a
    look at it and edit if you have been compiling your own kernels and want to
    get rid of them, or to make sure your default kernel is the one you want.
