If you want to remove the old one you can go to Terminal ->
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
and remove the relevant lines for the old kernel.
should look something like
title Linux Mint, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet splash
Post back if you need any additional advice.

linuxviolin wrote:Open Synaptic and search for 'kernel 2.6.24-16-generic' or just 'kernel' for example and remove all packages related to your old kernel. But just a hint: the old kernel can serve as a relief to start your system if one day you have any problems with the 'new' kernel... You may want to keep it, including in your Grub, in case. It's up to you!
