Now that I'm actually using my new kernel (as opposed to when I was using
the old kernel with the new one not hooked into lilo) AND I've update
locales (which updated two modules: libc6, libc6-dev) AND I've added
NVdriver to /etc/modules I no longer have to load the driver by hand each

Yup. This is how I recompile my kernel.

Step One: backup files.
/lib/modules all go into a tar ball
vmlinuz (which is redundant, but that's what I do).

Step Two: configure kernel
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
edit lilo.conf to point to new bzImage (or vmlinuz)

Step Three: reboot
Step Four: uname -a to make sure I'm running the right kernel
