GIYF, but it's not that complicated, although there are quite a lot of
'gotchas'.  Basically:

1)  Download some source - either some linux-source package, or vanilla
from kernel.org (via http or git)

2)  From the appropriate directory, run make menuconfig (or xconfig or
whatever you prefer) and configure appropriately

3)  Run (as root, or using fakeroot) 'make-kpkg [--initrd]
[--revision=revisionstring] kernel_image'

4)  Run 'dpkg -i kernelname'

If you're using an initrd, you'll need to install the appropriate hook
scripts.  Read the README.gz and other documentation.
