Compiling the Kernel

  # make-kpkg clean
  # make-kpkg --append-to-version -p3 --revision kayon01 --initrd kernel_image
  # make-kpkg --append-to-version -p3 --revision kayon01 --initrd modules_image

The use of -append-to-version will cause a new package to be created called kernel-image-2.4.16-p3 with revision 1.0. This package can then be installed without overwriting kernel-image-2.4.16 which may have been separately downloaded and installed.

You will be left with /usr/src/kernel-image-2.4.16-p3_kayon01_i386.deb and /usr/src/alsa-modules-2.4.16-p3_0.5.10b-6+p0+kayon01_i386.deb and /usr/src/pcmcia-modules-2.4.16-p3_3.1.8-10+2:kayon01_i386.deb, depending on what you have. These are ready to install.
