I assume you have correctly used KERNCONF=MYKERNELCONF.
The variable KERN*EL*KONF will be ignored and GENERIC
will be used.

The rest of your procedure looks correct.

I'd suggest to use the following approach in multi-user mode:

	# cd /usr/src
	# make clean
	... edit configuration file ...
	# reboot

Note that "make kernel" is short for "make buildkernel" followed
by "make installkernel", but that's what you need, so it's less
typing. :-)

As you didn't change version numbers (new checkout of sources),
kernel and world version are still in sync. This is a requirement.
