I don't know how did you do it but the standard way of compiling a new
kernel : (everything happens in the kernel source directory) make
mrproper, make menuconfig, make clean, make bzImage, make modules, make
modules_install, make install, depmod -a, cp the System.map to /boot (if
install didn't do it). Or, because you use debian you have another option.
make-kpkg. The process is : make mrproper, make menuconfig, make-kpkg
--bzimage --revision=name.number kernel_image
This will create a .deb package for you into the previous directory which
you are in (sorry my english; if you are in /usr/src/kernel-2.2.17 then
the image wil be at /usr/src). Just install the image with dpkg -i
image-name.deb and the dpkg will does everithing for you.
