Take a look at the kernel-package package. After you have done your "make
menuconfig" (or equivalent) you can use "make-kpkg [options] kernel-image"
to make a .deb of your kernel - and we can all do "dpkg -i ..." ;-)
One of the thorniest issues is naming of package versions - read the
kernel-package docs regarding this.
