Yes, I used to do that all the time on a server when I was installing custom 
kernels. I think the postinst scripts run update-initramfs automatically. 
Obviously, the new kernel must be fully installed before the initrd image 
can be created since it copies modules from /lib/modules/3.2.2 into the 
image. You can run mkinitramfs directly if you want your own custom image, 
but I don't recommend it. I suggest reading the update-initramfs man page.
