Fedora 16 - Disable Automatic Grub Updates

I am fairly new to Fedora, and Linux in general. There may be an easy solution to this, but I am not quite certain. How can I disable my Fedora machine from automatically updating the grub and kernel. I have a Windows 7 and Fedora boot option, however additional entries get placed after the updating, essentially messing up the entire order of the grub. After the update the old entries still remain in the grub building a huge clutter.



Ex.



Before

----------------------------

Fedora

Windows 7 (Default)

----------------------------



After

----------------------------

Fedora

Fedora*some #* (Default)

Fedora*some #*

Windows 7

----------------------------



I am also blacklisting nouveau, so I can install the CUDA toolkit.



Any ideas on how I can go about solving this problem? Much thanks in advance!
