make menuconfig
make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image  -- kernel is built here.
dpkg -i ../kernel-image-X.XXX_1.0_<arch>.deb  -- kernel is installed.
edit and run lilo

You can archive your kernels this way.  The main purpose is to build the
kernel.  Using kpkg cuts out some steps such as having to "make modules."
Given the choice I go with the 'kernel-package.'
