Re: custom kernel configuration


	make-kpkg takes all the steps that you took, and,
 additionally, tells dselect/dpkg and friends that you have the kernel
 installed, and it installs documentation in /usr/doc. It also adds an
 easy method to remove it all cleanly, and warns you if you try to
 remove a running kernel or a kernel that is mentioned in your
 lilo.conf file. 

	You have done the kernel install flawlessly; make-kpkg is
 there to ensure that the rest of us can install the kernel, even
 before our first cup of coffee. It is a convenience measure (but then
 again, all non machine code languages are convenience measure ;-)
