    It's very simple to do, if I read your post correctly, you wish to boot the same partition with the option of using either kernel. This is a simple case of compiling the kernel as you normally would, installing the modules with 'make modules_install', and then copying your new kernel image over to /boot, it will be called bzImage, choose whatever name you wish.
    After this it comes down to the bootloader, you should already have the section in the config file to boot the partition with the current kernel, you simply need to copy this and change the kernel name to the new kernel, and the name of which it will be identified under the bootmenu, this will allow you to have the option in the bootmenu to use either kernel.

    If you need more detailed information just ask, I hope that helps.
