I've been able to to use make-kpkg kernel-image to create a custom

On a related note, does the kernel installer create the initrd.img?
preinst or postinst or ?
cd in your kernel-source directory (/usr/src/kernel-whatever-source).
After you compiled your kernel run from here:
make-kpkg --revision number modules_image
After finishing do cd .. and install the image with:
dpkg --install module-whatever.deb
See alo as an example /usr/share/doc/pcmcia-source/README.gz
I'm trying again. The kernel directory has subdirs with the driver
source etc. so if this below looks okay perhaps i'll have better luck.
