Doesn't look like it. I suppose you could leave the headers hanging
around, but then you have 90.3MB of disk space that isn't doing anything.
The right command is
sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.35-27-generic
sudo apt-get remove --purge 2.6.35-27-*
You're right. On my system (lucid) "sudo apt-get remove
linux-image-x.x.xx-xx-generic"removes all related files from /boot and
also the related entries from menu.lst. It leaves the header files
untouched. What will "apt-get remove --purge" do to the menu.lst file?
Will that have to be edited manually?
