First do "rpm -q kernel", then you'll get a list of the kernels
installed, e.g.:

kernel-<oldversion1>
kernel-<oldversion2>
kernel-<currently_used_version>

Now do "rpm -e kernel-<oldversion1> kernel-<oldversion2>" to uninstall
the two old kernels from the example list above. When you have several
versions of the same package installed you need to let RPM know which
version(s) you want to be removed.
