You can remove old kernels by using: 
rpm -e kernel-2.(the old versions)  
Run rpm -qa|grep kernel 
to see what old kernels you have.  
Run uname -r 
to get your current kernel.

When I get around to cleaning things up, I like to leave at least the
previous one and, of course, the current one.  

I believe that rpm -e will also clean up grub.
