I have downloaded the latest stable linux kernel release from this site

My question is, how do I install it in Ubuntu 12.04?

If you have to ask how to install that in Ubuntu, then I strongly recommend you not to proceed. Although you can build+install a kernel by copying & pasting commands, it should not be done unless you want to learn something. – Lekensteyn Jun 16 '12 at 19:04
@Lekensteyn, can you move this comment as an answer so that I can accept it? Thank you. – Peachy Aug 9 '12 at 5:52
I'd just delete this question if possible, my comment is not really an answer to the question and I am sure that several other questions/answers on this site already cover it. – Lekensteyn Aug 9 '12 at 9:28
Can't delete since it has an answer. I'll just accept the other one then. – Peachy Aug 9 '12 at 9:35
up vote 1 down vote accepted has a good article on the subject of building and installing a kernel.
