I've just installed 8.04 on an elderly laptop (PII-450, 256MB RAM). I
only had a vanilla GNOME LiveCD, so I've used that.

I've tried installing xubuntu-desktop instead and Xfce is indeed a bit
faster on this low-spec PC.

How can I now remove GNOME?

The hard disk is only 16G, so I don't have disk space to burn.
