Are you suppose to uninstall the old version's or do you just let them stack up ?
How is this done by the senior Linux guys here ?
Normally you don't need the older kernel RPMs if the newer one is working. However, it is always nice to keep one older kernel just in case there's a glitch in the new one (which happens quite often in the later 2.4 kernels).
As of the frequency of upgrade, it all depends on individuals. Usually I won't do an upgrade if I know the security bug won't affect me, for example the bug only affect one of the kernel modules that I don't use, or it's only a local exploit. I rather stick to something that works than going for the latest and greatest (and buggiest) kernel release.
