Please, Please, DO NOT do this! It may work now since stable and
unstable are not too far apart, but it could lead to disaster later
down the road.

I STRONGLY encourage you to learn how to use the Debian kernel tools like
"make-kpkg" to compile custom kernels from the Debian or kernel.org
sources. I found the following on a Google search, but there are plenty of
other guides around:

Good Luck,
