Lots and lots and lots of compiling.  Use existing guides to guide you.

I newer did it for Ubuntu, but because all *buntus are, after all, Debian-based, you can always use the deboostrap to install base system (google ubuntu deboostrap, there are several guides). But you will have to compile a custom kernel the way that Ubuntu will accept it, which is not an easy job. Expect problems, especialy with things like the bootplash and similar eye-candies.

Anyone who can't find what others have done / won't try it ... probably best not to start.  It's a task and a half, not for the faint of heart / lazy!

Yes, that's right, if somebody can succesfully accomplish this, (s)he probably not a typical *buntu user anyway :-)
