I'm using Debian 3.0r0 with default kernel 2.4.18-bf24. Now I would like to recompile it using the 2.4.20 kernel the 'Debian Way'.

What does it exactly mean when it starts off with 'apt-get install kernel-image' and 'apt-get install kernel-package'?

What if I already downloaded the 2.4.20 stock kernel already?

Last time I did this I manually compiled the kernel and it worked without problems, this time I would like to try the Deb way.
