Currently if a user install's a new linux kernel the bootloader displays multiple installations like this:

OpenSuse 11.2 -2.6.31 etc etc (default)
Failsafe OpenSuse 11.2 -2.6.3 etc etc (default)
Desktop OpenSuse 11.2 -2.6.31 etc etc
Failsafe OpenSuse 11.2 -2.6.3 etc etc (desktop)

Alot of beginners won't even know what this is or which one to choose.

You should only display one OpenSuse 11.2 and hide the other options with a "see more" button that users can push Enter on to make them visible.
