The guide on the Wiki is maintained and is thoroughly tested (and 
ammended as necessary) for each new kernel release so I would strongly 
suggest you stick with that method. If you have any issues following 
that methodology I'm sure Akemi and Alan, the maintainers of that page, 
will be happy to assist you. Akemi is active on this list and I'm sure 
will respond in due course.
