Two kernels by default

I have just installed MDK 10.0 Official and I've been suprised by the fact thta there are two strange options in lilo:

263-7 (/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.3-7mdk)

2425-2 (/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.25-2mdk)

 

So I open the Mandrake Control Center and go to the section where you can remove software [if I say it in such a way it's because I'm spanish-spoken and I don't know the exac English title fo that section] and find out I have two kernels installed, that is: kernel-2.4.25.2mdk-1-1mdk and kernel-2.6.3.7mdk-1-1mdk

 

The default (the the only one I've used so far) option in lilo is /boot/vmlinuz, wich is a symbolic link to vmlinuz-2.6.3-7mdk, the one corresponding to the new kernel.

 

 

So, is that normal? [it didn't use to happen in previous versions I installed] Is it useful for anything? ShouldI remove old 2.4?

Hi,

I believe it will happen with an upgrade install....i had even more options in the boot menu when i upgraded from mdk 9.1 to 10.0

Later, i backed up all my stuff and did a fresh install.

Now, the boot menu gives something like this:

 

linux

263-7

windows

floppy

failsafe
