I want to install this custom rom on xperia ray: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1825892

My phone: xperia ray ST18i
Android: 2.3.4
Kernel: 2.6.32.9
Firmware: 4.0.2.A.0.69
What steps i must do with my phone, to install that rom?

First rule of xda is SEARCH! So search.
Second: there is a Q&A thread, ask questions there
Third: what you linked is an ICS rom, and you are on GB and i think (but you didn't wrote) you are on locked bootloader. You must upgrade to latest ics, and root it at install cwm.
Fourth: In linked thread there are a guide how to install for locked

Locked-bootloader instructions
After Root & Install CWM
1) Backup current system with CWM
1) Wipe data/factory reset
2) Wipe cache partition
3) Mounts and Storage -> format /system
4) Advanced -> Wipe Dalvik cache
5) Install zip from SD Card -> Then select MIUI ROM zip file
7) Then restore DATA only from your ROM backup
8) Restart

NOTE: the above procedure is necessary every time you install a ROM on a locked boot-loader
