I'm not sure what you mean with "back porting". If you mean you want to 
use a previous kernel instead of the one from the latest update, then you 
should boot to the kernel you want to use and then remove the kernels you 
don't want to use (e.g. with synaptic). Another option would be to copy 
the entry or the wanted kernel in front of the automagic kernel list of 
the file "/boot/grub/menu.lst".

However if you want to go back to a previous Ubuntu version, I don't think 
there is an easy way to do it.
