    I have this still on my /boot/grub/menu.lst

title        Ubuntu 8.04.1, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
root        (hd0,5)
kernel        /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic 
root=UUID=8713c541-dffa-4fd2-b22b-e600afacbab2 ro quiet splash
initrd        /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-16-generic

I think 2.6.24-16 was what I got when I loaded Hardy. It is still on my 
computer and I can boot using that kernel right now if desired. See if 
you have the same.

Then if you do not want to use the new kernels you can delete them from 
the file menu.lst and even delete the kernel packages.
