Sounds right to me but you are missing the make dep stage. This is
what I type when I build a new kernel (once configured, mind you)
make dep && make clean bzImage modules modules_install
this should do the trick for you. One way to _really_ make sure is to start with
and then proceed with the line above. Be careful though; I _think_
that make mrproper is very particular about its task. I might kill
your kernel configuration file in the cleaning frenzy... :-)
This is all off the top of my head and there might be errors and
omissions in my reply, of course. Just back up your configuration file
once in a while and give it a try. If you omit the step with make
modules_install there is nothing in here that makes large changes to
your file system so you should be safe to experiment.
