Well, it should be as simple as:

... change into the directory your kernel tarball created
make xconfig (or make menuconfig if you are not running X)
make zImage modules
... go and get yourself a cup of tea ...
su (to become root)
make modules_install
make install

Then you may need to edit your boot loader (I think you said that you
were using grub?) configuration.  People who are running debian can tell
you more about doing that. For me, /etc/grub.conf is the thing to look

Let me know if you have any trouble with ndiswrapper. Make sure not to
enable 4K stacks when you are configuring your kernel!
