[OCLUG-Tech] resend of prematurely sent post

I accidentally  typed send while editing; sorry.

here is my full post:

It sounds like my best strategy is to delete my 7.04 and 7.10 installations,
clean the boot choices and re-install 7.04 and 7.10 from the internet.
I gather that, since I have no desire to run multiple installations,
the live CDs are useless to me.  I find this odd since I installed ubuntu
6.04 on
by home computer with (what I believe was a live CD) and I installed 7.10
from the live CD at work (admittedly a dual boot).

I assume I have to repartition my disk to get rid of the 7.04 and
I will use parted for this (gparted fails to start for some reason).
This will be only my second time partitioning a disk so I will read the doc
throughly and be careful.

But I need to know how to clean up the list of installations at boot time?

Advice welcome.
