It would probably be easier to copy the kernal, BUT I still recommend you 
to recompile the kernal. Then you will get a kernel that is optimized 
for your needs, which doesn't include alot of non-used drivers.

After you installed the kernal-source be sure to read 

other usefull information is available in
(if you want to use modules that is)

Tip: make menuconfig is nice, and have a easy-to-use built in
help function (also availabel in make config)

Good luck
