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

    Code:

    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 :D
