apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.18

        --config={config,menuconfig,xconfig} \
        --append-to-version=-custom.$I \
        --revision=custom.$I \

I've never used this argument, but I have specified an arch in the
configuration menu.

Increment the revision number each time you recompile.  This will
prevent conflicts between the packages, and you'll also know which
recompile you are testing this time.
