What'S the output of
Code:
uname -a
? You need to keep that kernel, the rest can be removed. Which distribution do you use?

You can remove all kernels except 2.6.31-22-server. It's a good idea to do this with apt. This will also modify your GRUB configuration and remove the old kernels.

You could also try cleaning out /var/log cause those files do build up
