What do you mean by kernel specification? I'm no expert, but I doubt you
have to build a custom kernel.
If you don't have a problem with non-free software, have you tried the
$ sudo aptitude install module-assistant
$ sudo m-a a-i fglrx
You will prompted to install some required package (kernel headers etc.)
and if all goes well - it should - the fglrx kernel module will be
Now all you have to do is configure Xorg to use it.
$ sudo Xorg -configure
$ sudo vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf
If the above hasn't installed it, also install the fglrx-glx package.
$ sudo aptitude install fglrx-glx
Now restart the X server.
Anyway that was just off the top of my head, you will getter better
instructions from an official source.
