hmm... that wasnt it. 
dunno... i dont like the debian build system
it builds everything.

i tried it once, waited 30 minutes, and the kernel it built didnt work.
i just built a proper bzImage using my config from gentoo,
and it worked.

i dont think i will bother with this again.
although this kernel is a bit bitchy :)

rebooting like 3 times in order to install a kernel.
