"make bzImage modules modules_install"
Wouldn't it mean, that I have to compile the kernel first to see, if
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build points to the kernel sources directory

cp /boot/
cp .config /boot/.config-2.X.XX.X

the rest depends now on your bootloader config if it is lilo or grub...
Shouldn't I have installed the kernel first (the .deb-files)? I'm using grub
