i dont know what the *best* way is, but you could:

1) download whatever kernel source you want from kernel.org
2) untar it, and copy the /boot/config-2.6.8-<blah> to the source
3) make oldconfig
4) fakeroot make-kpkg clean
5) fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=.20050901.0 kernel_image
6) dpkg -i kernel-image<blah>.deb
