When you run make-kpkg, you could add the "--append-to-version=-xxx" option
to give /lib/modules/2.x.x-xxx a unique name.

manually make symlink in / to point to kernel, 
e.g., /vmlinuz-2.4.18-k6: symbolic link to boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-k6

put entries for each kernel you want in your list in /etc/lilo.conf like:

image=/vmlinuz-2.4.18-k6
        label=2.4.18-k6
        read-only
        initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.4.18-k6 #if you need initrd
        append="devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi" #whatever you need

image=/vmlinuz-2.4.17-xu
        label=2.4.17-xu
        read-only
        append="devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi" #whatever you need
