Just follow Ventrical's lead on the 3.7 kernel I install 3.8 in Lucid.
rrnbtter-laptop:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 3.8.0-030800rc1-generic (root@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201212212135 SMP Sat Dec 22 02:45:41 UTC 2012

Everything was fast and working except that I didn't have any drivers for my Atheros WIFI, nor my US Cellular USB modem.

After rebooting to my 2.6 kernel and doing some research on the internet. I rebooted back to the 3.8 kernel but had a boot failure do to a failed Home dir scan. I put my RR harddrive back in my computer and I can access the Home dir on the Lucid drive just fine with my USB adapter. So I may wait for an update on the kernel and give it another go.
