it makes some time-stamps, you can track your kernelversion in
numbering from custom.1 ... cutsom.X

in fact it installs all the modules and you could move out the old
ones then it makes a kernelimage in /boot and links it to /vmlinuz
and holds the old one in /boot with version number, anyway you can go
back and install your old cutsom if you hold the debs... 

I am not sure whats better I just found it more comfortable because I
dont have to think about what to put where and I know how much customs 
I did on which machine and install them to other machines...

I did not try

I am wondering if this is the preferred way of debian and if this will be
supported for future kernel structures... ?
