rpm -e kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 kernel-2.6.9-1.667
kernel-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.35_FC3
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.27_FC3
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 kernel-smp2.6.9-1.667

This is 1 line / single command. Of course you can run the erase in
several steps. Have some patience to get all the kernels deleted.
