I REALLY recommend kernel-package.  It allows you to build your kernel as a 
regular user, and create a .deb package out of it.  Then you can install it 
as root on your machine and any others like it that you might be 
administering.

After installing it, cd to /usr/share/doc/kernel-package and zcat README.gz | 
more.  The quick-and-dirty usage instructions will be near the top of the 
document for easy reference.  

Also, if you use the default lilo.conf, there will be an optional entry for 
Linux.old, which will point to the most recently replaced kernel (although 
I'm not sure about it's associated modules).

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
