I go via a .deb:

Enter the kernel source directory, copy the desired kernel config
to .config (probably safest to start with the one from Ubuntu's kernel),

fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=rlrevell.0.9
--append-to-version=-smp-noipv6 kernel_image

The .deb will be generated one directory up.

Then since the Ubuntu kernel config requires an initramfs:

cd to /boot, su to root, then:

mkinitramfs -o initrd.img-2.6.17-rt3-smp-noipv6 2.6.17-rt3-smp-noipv6

/boot/grub/menu.lst will already have been updated when you installed
the .deb, just add a line like:

initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-rt3-smp-noipv6
