    linux-image packages have been merged back into 1 package by the looks of it, so only 3 to install.

    Download the latest kernel
    Code:
    tar xvzJf linux-3.9-rc7.tar.xz
    cd linux-3.9-rc7
    make menuconfig
    ##--select what options you need available in the kernel, I don't know your hardware so can't help--##
    make && make modules_install
    
    cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-3.9-rc7
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    mkinitcpio -p linux
    ^.this will make sure that grub will make an entry for 3.9.
    Than I generally just run an update after reboot and it's good to go, I personally find the 3.9-raring.deb kernels buggy... so I compile them myself.

    I'm probably missing ubuntu specific things, but everyone that uses linux should at least know how to download and compile a kernel(or at least learn how to). It's pretty easy, just make sure you know your hardware! Your compiled kernels will run a lot better than the generic kernels for very obvious reasons, your only selecting what you need, the binaries probably have EVERYTHING ticked.

    The way I do things is the way I've always done with linux from scratch or gentoo, I prefer source based distros to binary but I prefer apt-get to pacman (prefer arch being more vanilla but like some stability) so I generally compile a custom kernel and I generally only do it once a new stable kernel is released.

    Very old but it's debian/ubuntu specific for compiling a kernel.

    Various different recipes off the ubuntu wiki. Some using upstream git/source, and some using ubuntu modified sources.

    is there a way to get virtualbox to work on the 3.9 kernel?

    why it should not ?
    remember you need build-essential & linux-source to be installed first

    linux-headers rather than linux-source are sufficient to compile guest/host drivers and kernel modules.
