However if you do use that wiki be sure to rename the new kernel after you edit your config, otherwise when you attempt to use aptitude to update/upgrade it will try to update/upgrade your kernel.

I fixed my problem with compilation (yep, it was gcc 4.3 versus 2.6.24 
kernel, and the only working switch to 4.2 is - relink /usr/bin/gcc and 
other symlinks by hands). And I also recompiled kernel last night =) but 
can you point me how correctly create package with different name and 
different name of kernel inside it?
