Would appreciate some assistance. Currently I have a choice of cores. Of course the newest one 2.6.9 is NOT chosen by default, and I have to choose it. It's a pain when I turn of the five computers here. Is there any why to change the default to the newest, or uninstall the three old cores?

This "cores" are actually kernels you can boot.

It's all in /etc/grub.conf file.
Edit this file and remove entries you dont want.
But please make a backup copy of this file for safety!

Check which kernels you have installed: rpm -qa | grep kernel
And remove installed kernel like this: rpm -e kernel-version
It's good to have the default Fedora kernel it something goes wrong with the new ones.

you can set the default startup kernel by adjusting the line:
0 is the first entry, 1 is the second entry...etc as they are ordered in the grub.conf file.
In this sample below Windows is set to boot by default:

title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.678_FC3)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.678_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title SuSE 9.1
root (hd1,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-7.111-default root=/dev/hdb3 vga=0x31a splash=silent desktop resume=/dev/hdb2 showopts
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.5-7.111-default

you can use the configuration utilty system-config-boot to change settings.

You can also remove them. Older ones are kept just in case of problems.
