how to edit grub.conf to load the latest kernel? CentOS 6.5


I have a new droplet with kernel 2.6.32-431. I did the yum update kernel command. Before reboot I need to edit grub.conf.

My grub.conf is now the following:

title CentOS (2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 ro root=UUID=c5f51db1-bfe$
        initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64.img

What changes do it need to load the latest 2.6.32-431.23.3.el6.x86_64 kernel?

thank you
