Also, you should seriously consider looking at the kernel-package
package, in particular look at the make-kpkg utility. It makes using
custom-compiled kernels in Debian MUCH easier to deal with. 

To use it you just do your "make <config|menuconfig|xconfig>" and then
just invoke make-kpkg like:

make-kpkg --revision 5:mypc.1 --bzimage kernel_image

and you'll get a kernel_image*.deb file that you can install with
dpkg. Install it, read the docs and feel free to post if you have any
questions about it. Again, it's MUCH easier to handle custom kernels
in Debian if you use it and it is the Debian Way (TM) to use and
install custom kernels.
