Moving an IP from one Linode to another?

I have a Linode with an older version of Centos. I want to create a new Ubuntu box, configure that to replace the old Centos box, then give it the IP of the Centos box once I shut it down.

How can I accomplish this?

Here is our Transferring IP Addresses guide on how you can achieve this. This Community site post also goes in depth how you can swap the your IP addresses between the two boxes.
