The other option is to use the Ubuntu Mini ISO to install it... You can
install fluxbox instead of Lubuntu, or you can install lubuntu-desktop
and fluxbox, and configure fluxbox to use LXpanels, and PCManFM, etc..
I have a iBook that I installed a Debian Mini ISO on and run JWM/Rox
quite well... I had some graphics issues with Lubuntu 12.04... but I
have an ISO of 14.04 I am going to try (hopefully this weekend), as I
like Debian, but Ubuntu is very good at being easy to use, which is
extremely nice when you don't have hours and hours of time to play
around configuring everything :D
If you want to remaster a Live CD version of Lubuntu using Fluxbox, that
is an entirely different question, and one that will take some work on
your part, and lots of reading.
