That's definitely the way I'd do it on Fedora. Works great.

Debian provides the rather nice make-kpkg tool (provided by the
kernel-package package), which is a wrapper for compiling kernels from
source and making an installable .deb from it, putting the .config file
as "config-nn.nn.nn" in /boot, etc. Link "Information" on
http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Debian has details.
