I used the command "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kernel-ppa/ppa" to access the kernel packages. I believe this places the line "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kernel-ppa/ppa/ubuntu lucid main" in a sources list file, and adds the key. After running "sudo apt-get update" I could install the 2.6.38-10 packages with apt-get. Sorry if I'm explaining too much, it's the first time I've used a PPA.

I have also does this update to great success on two Studio 15 laptops. Those required a manual update of the "fglrx" kernel module for the new kernel. I installed the catalyst version 11-3 drivers that include this module without issue.
