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