    root [/usr/src/kernels]#

    when i type command "uname -a"

    root [/usr/src/kernels]# uname -a
    Linux 2.6.9-89.0.9.ELsmp #1 SMP Mon Aug 24 07:56:18 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    root [/usr/src/kernels]#

    the kernel that use is 2.6.9-89.0.9.ELsmp


    that i want to ask is:

    may i remove the old kernel folder?
    it will damage the OS if i delete the old kernel? or what the effect if i remove the old kernel?

    need your suggest for this.

    NB: sorry if my english is to bad :D

    thank for your help
