I installed ubuntu with a ubuntu cd.

When ubuntu was running - in gnome - I opened synaptic, and then I
searched for fluxbox, and installed it.
(Remember to click reload in synaptic from time to time). 

Then I restarted ubuntu, and at the login screen I choose Options (lower
left corner) and choose fluxbox instead of gnome, and logged in, and I
was in fluxbox.

When you want to change desktop (gnome or fluxbox) always log out and
follow description as above.
