Thank you Nio and sorry for wasting your time.
It must have take a lot of time and effort to create the image and upload
it to the site.
I hope there will be people who will use your lubuntu-core image.
I've downloaded Lubuntu-13.10-desktop-grub-n-iso-n-swap.img.gz and will
install it when I get my hands on an extra USB stick.
I hope I will be able to install it since I've only got 512Mb of RAM.
Cheers!
