Re: Custom kernel and boot problems still...
There's a package called 'kernel-package' that has Debian Linux kernel package
build scripts in it. You can find kernel-package from section misc. Note that
there might be a newer version in unstable than stable.
I'm attaching a previous mail from debian-user about the same question.
Make-kpkg is one of the files in package kernel-package.

The procedure would work, but leave no record with dpkg about
the kernel being used. I like being able to use dpkg to track kernel
images/sources and easy install/de-install.
The above sequence is equivalent to the excerpt from the
For the Brave and the impatient:
1% cd <kernel source tree>
2% make config # or make menuconfig or make xconfig and configure
3% make-kpkg -r=custom.1.0 kernel_image
4% dpkg -i ../kernel-image-X.XXX_1.0_<arch>.deb
5% shutdown -r now # If and only if LILO worked or you have a means of
# booting the new kernel. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
