I don't know if this is the correct way, but I just remove all files in
/boot that resemble the kernel version, plus
/lib/modules/<kernel-version> plus edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst by hand
and remove the lines for the kernel.

Now that I think about it, maybe I should to it via package management...
