My issue is that the machine only has a cd drive and the Lubuntu disc
(which I downloaded from here several times: and it is 705mb every
time and won’t on a 700mb. Are there any files on the image that can be
further compressed? Maybe using 7z ultra compression. I only need to lose 5
mb. I can’t afford a dvd drive atm and it’s not really worth it for me to
get one anyone as I have other Linux machines already. Thanks in advanced
for any help.
Try using the Lubuntu mini I so or the lubuntu alternative images. The
lubuntu alternative should be less than 700MB.  This will give you a
minimal system and you can install extra packages from the internet.
