kernel compile error..start over?


I thought Id try and compile 2.6.28.kernel on debian lenny.It error-ed out at making documents section..a zlib error..I looked for it in synaptic and installed it and started to fakeroot make-kpkg kernel_image kernel_headers....and after it was done i installed the .deb packages it made.On reboot it just sat there "please wait..loading"..Did I have to start over and make clean and mrproper??In make meuconfig i went in and tried to remove stuff that i didnt need..not sure if i unselected something that was important.I started over again and its building now..I used config from /boot and left everything alone except processor family,pre-emptive kernel and set frequency to 1000..and added ext4 ..Basically followed this guide

If you change only in make menuconfig (make xconfig etc) you usually don't need make clean. When compiling your own kernel, it's a good idea to take the configuration from your distribution and remove the stuff you know you don't need and add some more that you know you need. 'Vanilla' kernel may not always boot on your machine...
