there is one thing I never did before and that is compiling a kernel.

I've searched the net a little bit with google and also tried to get

produce a .deb package that you can install/remove with dpkg. so the
tricky part for you will be the configuration, which in turn depends
mostly on your hardware components (you should know what's in your box).
read the debian reference for instructions:
