Why not try compiling your own kernel?
make-kpkg makes it quite simple for us non developer types.
All you need to do is install kernel-package, and perhaps gcc, make, g++ if 
they don't already come down with kernel-package.
/usr/share/doc/kernel-package has the readme that shows you how to compile
your own .deb.
