The correct way of installing for a target machine is to use
make INSTALL_MOD_PATH=foo modules_install
You need to mkdir -p foo/lib/modules first. Everything is installed in
foo/lib/modules/`uname -r` instead of /lib/modules so you do not
disturb your compile system.

There is also make INSTALL_PATH to specify where vmlinuz and
are stored for make zlilo and make install.
