That may be your problem. You could try:
make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
...to build the kernel (custom.1.0 is just my suffix, you can use
whatever you want), then:
# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.8_custom.1.0_powerpc.deb
...to install it.

That's ok, you don't need much hacking experience to build the kernel.
