Not sure I understand the problem.
If you fill the KERNEL_VERSION= variable correctly, you just have to call the
commands listed there, so you can more or less copy and paste this into the
shell (if in the built kernel main directory):

export KERNEL_VERSION="string in quotes from step 5."
cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-$KERNEL_VERSION && \
mkinitrd -k vmlinuz-$KERNEL_VERSION -i initrd-$KERNEL_VERSION

I'll attach a tiny shell script which I use for these steps.
If you should have problems with above, call the script in the built kernel
main directory and you get:
- the modules installed
- kernel and system map copied
- initrd creation
- boot entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst
All you still have to do is to check whether the new kernel gets the default
entry or you can choose the newly installed kernel manually on next boot.

Should there be any answers to the questions? I just hit enter and accepted
the default.
Yep, that should work out.
