i have downloaded the 2.6.10 kernel configured it and compiled fine using
Code:
make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image
i then typed
Code:
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.10_10.00.Custom_i386.deb
and got the following error

Pckage `module-init-tools' is not installed and no info is available.
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: checkpkg: dpkg -s module-init-tools failed
Failed to create initrd image.

Thats probably in the autoload modules part, which is right at the start of the config. The autoload and unload of modules
