Default Newbies question about recompiling kernel

OK I compiled my first kernel using Falko's guide, it was OK.

Now I have to recompile my existing kernel (2.6.14) and I'm wandering whitch commands to execute after 'make menuconfig', changing device drivers etc and exiting 'Linux Kernel Configuration'?
I use Sarge.
Thanks

It's same kernel version, I just want to change sound configuration (new sound adapter).
Do I need to start with 'fakeroot....' after changing configuration?

make clean
and then
Code:
make menuconfig

Yes I know that but I'm not sure after that and changing configuration.
Should I run:

make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image

dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.11.7_custom.1.x_i386.deb

or somethin else?

Code:
make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.1 kernel_image
cd ../
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.11.7_custom.1.1_i386.deb
So you increase the revision number. It's not necessary, but makes sense.
