Start by getting used to building Linux as others have already done.  There are details on here, on Olimex site, their blog and plenty for Linux all over the net.

After that, see if you still want exactly what you asked and if so go for it.

I don't usually say this but... why? Is there something wrong with 12.04, or 12.10?

Your biggest problem is going to be finding an armhf root file system for a version of Ubuntu that old. I know there is some Cortex A9 support (Tegra 2, to be specific), but I wouldn't put a lot of money on the process being at all straightforward.

As John mentioned, there are several dozen "build an SD card from scratch" links here, in the wiki, and on the web. Have you tried following them? If not, start there. If so, what is unclear about them?

Not to be rude, but don't just say "Someone tell me how to do this!" At least put in *some* effort to try it yourself first, and when you get stuck, ask specific questions and people here will probably be much more willing to help you out.
