I can't say I've read the above guide (and I'm offline now), but here's
the quick'n'nasty Debian Way of building a kernel:

0) Install 'build-essential' (required to build anything with the C
compiler) and 'kernel-package' (generates kernel-image .debs from
your kernel source) and 'fakeroot' (required to build .debs as a
normal user).

1) get and untar your kernel source. From kernel.org or a
kernel-source-<version> package, it doesn't matter.

2) run 'make menuconfig' (which requires libncurses5-dev to be
installed) or 'make xconfig' (which requires tcl and tk to be
installed) to configure your kernel just as you like it. Make sure
you select the correct CPU type, or it will not boot. Don't forget
to include support for your root filesystem (ext2, reiserfs,
whatever) AND support for your root hard disk (and IDE controller or
SCSI card or whatever) or the kernel will fail to boot.

3) run 'make-kpkg --rootcmd=fakeroot kernel_image kernel_headers'.

4) install the kernel-image and kernel-headers .debs that appear in ../

Note, you only need to be 'root' for step (4).

After you've done all that, your new kernel should be installed and
ready to go. Just reboot and you should be in your brand spanking new
kernel. 'uname -r' lets you check this. Enjoy!
