Manually moving unwanted kernels from /boot

If they really are unwanted kernels then there is a package that might
help:  system-cleaner (and system-cleaner-gtk).

If you install those you'll see an entry, "Cruft remover" in the System ->
preferences menu.

If you fire that up it should spot any kernels that are ok to remove and
offer to remove them for you.
