I see six different kernels in my grub menu.
Are there any productive ways to use them, are they for special/emergency cases there or should i just dump them?

Just go into menu.lst and comment the ones you never use with "#". If you never use them in a while just remove the older kernels to free up disk space. When most versions of Linux auto update the kernel the old version is left behind in case of hardware/driver issues (mostly) with the newer updated kernel.
