Easy tutorial for re-compiling and installing the Ubuntu Kernel

E

I always forget that to compile the GNU/Linux Kernel the Ubuntu way, there are some different steps to be followed compared to the classical method. Therefore, I’ll post here this very useful link for future references:
http://www.question-defense.com/2010/09/26/how-to-recompile-your-ubuntu-10-10-kernel-for-patching-or-to-add-support-for-a-specific-device.

This very useful tutorial provides step-by-step instructions, is very well written and also easy to read.
It also works for compiling the Ubuntu Kernel in newer versions such as Natty Narwhal (11.04) and Oneiric Ocelot (11.10).
