All versions of Ubuntu user the same kernel, the only variation would be kernel "flavors".

Flavors are variations in the kernel .config


You can view the various config online

+1 ty for the clarification - so if I want to build lubuntu, is it just a matter of building the kernel with the right flavor and installing the correct packages? –  kfmfe04 Dec 28 '11 at 2:00
