Bug#291679: debian-installer-manual: beginner-friendly description of baking your own kernel

Package: debian-installer-manual
Severity: normal

Chapter 8.5 of the manual tells how to create your own kernel.
Since this manual is also for beginners with debian, it should
be beginner-friendly. There are two problems with this:

1. the manual assumes, that the kernel-source is located in
   /usr/local/src. When we install the kernel-source with
   the package management system (and this is recommended for
   beginners, isn't it), it is located in /usr/src.

2. man is told to create a directory under /usr/local/src/,
   but this dir isn't used anymore. So skip this step.
