This article only shows the Debian/Ubuntu specific things you need to know, a general Spacewalk installation needs to be done beforehand, see To Install Create channels with ‘Architecture’ set to ‘amd64-debian’ and ‘Yum Repository Checksum Type’ to SHA256. You can easily build them by yourself on a 12.04 machine: So far everything could be googled together from different sources.
