I just use the official Fedora kernel.
Is there any advantage about building my own kernel? I have Toshiba laptop, FC4 and Gnome.
best regards, Joao

This might apply if you're building your own kernels but I suspect the OP is just using the official Fedora kernel update packages, in which case they should be removed using rpm, or a front-end such as yum or package-cleanup.
