That's about it. At least, what I did. Of course, if you change your
kernel you also have to do the modules_image, too. Oh, the make-kpkg
command works only, if you're in the kernel-source root-dir
(/usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.18pre21 at your box).
Maybe make-kpkg will complain about the -revision parameter because
you already have a kernel-revision, which is also valid for the
modules, of course. Kernel and modules have to be the same revision.
One suggestion: I link the actual kernel-directory to linus:
`ln -s /usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.18pre21 /usr/src/linux`
I'm not sure, if that's required.

Nope. Just the modules should work fine.
