This will also work on Debian, no problem with that. But IMHO 

  make menuconfig
  make-kpkg clean
  make-kpkg --reision REVSTR kernel_image
  dpkg -i ...

(where I for example use for REV mfluch.1, mfluch.2, mfluch.3 etc.) is not
more comlicated than the other way, but has the advantage, that the
package management knows about the krenel installed...

Had never problems with that...

What goes wrong/does happen?


If the box says 'Windows 95 or better', it should run on Linux, right?
