Chances are you should clean up the kernels and remove the ones you aren't

It is unclear what the difference is. You send your grub.conf file (don't
recall where it is on Ubuntu, maybe /etc/grub.conf or somewhere under
/boot/) we can tell you if they are the same entry, just two different lines
that are the same.
That said, I would patch both if you use both. I have NO idea why you would
want what appears to be 2 separate installs that are the exact same.
