Clean-up your Linux /boot partition

My server monitoring by New Relic told me the other day that one of my server's disk drives was full. Upon further inspection it was just the /boot partition, the actual data partition had reached less then 40% capacity. However the /boot partition was filled with old versions of the Linux kernel that hadn't been removed.

Using this great post I was able to remove the 8 older Linux kernels on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system.
