There's a package "kernel-package" (warning, dependent on Perl, so you
won't be able to do apt-based install under Potato).
1) cd to /usr/src/linux and run 'make menuconfig'
2) do 'make dep'
3) do 'make-kpkg clean'
4) do 'make-kpkg --revision=_your_text_here_ kernel-image'
5) do 'make-kpkg --revision=_your_text_again_ modules-image'
6) do 'cd ..'
7) do 'dpkg --install kernel-image-2.2.10__your_text_here__i386.deb'
This is, of course, the easy part. The hard part is in part 1):
configuring the kernel!
Have fun, and don't forget the rescue disk, or alternative boot option
so that you can get back in after you cock it up ;-)
