      After `make` u have to issue a `make modules` command which will
      build all loadable modules and copy them to /lib/modules/2.6.12
      directory. after that create kernel image and copy it to boot
      directory and edit boot loader configuration file, u r done.

      my sytem.i did a make and then make install here i encountered a
      problem /lib/modules/2.6.12 is not available. so i made mkdir
