Question adding module in kernel after installation

Hi all,

I sucessfully complied and installed new kernel 2.6.21. Now, I want to compile another module in this kernel. My query is

Do I need to repeat whole process of xconfig, make bzImage, make modules, make modules_install, make install again or I can skip any of them .... ( I just want to get it done in less time )

Thanks in advance....

You can build the module as a standalone
