    Don't worry - this is normal. The update keeps older versions, "just in case" something goes wrong, so that you have something to go back to.

    By using Synaptics Package Manager to delete the old version of your KERNEL will automatically update your /boot/grub/menu.lst file.

    -Navigate to System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager, click on "Search" and type "linux-image" (w/o double quote). List of kernels will display and you'll have to right-click on the OLD kernel files and select "Mark for Complete Removal". Do the same with other older kernels. Once finished marking the old kernels, click on Apply.

    NOTE: It would be better for you to keep the previously updated Kernel version for backup purposes if in case the new kernel version produces problems.

    */boot/grub/menu.lst file is the configuration Ubuntu uses for you Boot Menu at startup.
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    You can just edit your grub file. Type:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    give your password.

    Then in the file find the section begins like this:

    Code:
    title		Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-19-generic
    root		(hd0,5)
    kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic root=UUID=4bcf07c0-272e-4645-84e4-4505aef31bfa ro splash vga=0x031b
    initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-19-generic
    quiet
    for every entry in you grub list, there is a similar scheme.
    Just keep only the latest kernel and comment the other ones (or any entry you don't want to see in your grub menu), like this:

    Code:
    #title		Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-19-generic
    #root		(hd0,5)
    #kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic root=UUID=4bcf07c0-272e-#4645-84e4-4505aef31bfa ro splash vga=0x031b
    #initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-19-generic
    #quiet
    Then just save file, and next time the grub menu will show only what you want.
