Finally took the plunge to compile SMP kernel.
 downloaded the vanilla linux-2.6.25 sources from ftp.kernel.org
 downloaded the all-in-one-patch from grml.org
 applied the patches (no failures seen)
 compiled the kernel with the commandi (in source directory):
 fakeroot make-kpkg clean
 fakeroot make-kpkg -append-to-version="-smp" kernel-image modules-image

 compiles with quite few warnings (too many to list) and creates .deb file

 installed the .deb file with dpkg -i
 (system does boot with -smp kernel..)

I have a question on entries in /lib/modules/2.6.15-grml-smp
  some directory entries that exist in /lib/modules/2.6.15-grml
  (drivers, extra, net etc.) are not created in
    /lib/modules/2.6.15-grml-smp (only kernel directory is cerated)

Is it normal? Is the -smp kernel using some modules from
/lib/modules/2.6.15-grml or did I make the kernel/modules wrong?
