To preserve the original source tree, I like to install sources, cd to
directory above (e.g. cd /usr/src), then:

cp -al linux-<version> linux-<version> linux-<version>cust
cd linux-<version>cust

Optional: "cp configs/<your_arch>.config .config" or copy from old
kernel source directory.

Optional: edit Makefile and customize EXTRAVERSION to your taste

Probably want "make gconfig" (or xconfig/menuconfig) here, else why are
you doing it?  ;^)

And add to GRUB or LILO config if you didn't do "make install".

Some people like "make rpm" - haven't tried it, but sounds potentially
more bullet-proof, and would keep the rpm database consistent with the
kernel version.
