Hello there,

Here is an very easy and obivious way to install Xubuntu while there's
no installation CD:

1- Put the latest Ubuntu 5.10 (breezy) install-CD in the drive and
turn the engines on :-);
2- In the Ubuntu boot screen, type: "   server   "
3- Follow the steps on screen;
4- When the system is installed and you are in the (console) login
screen, enter in your user (created in the installation) and enter as
root with the command: "   sudo su    ";
5- Edit the sources.list (with the command "   nano
/etc/apt/sources.list   ") and put uncomment the "   universe   "
repository line (search for universe and uncomment that line).
6- Save the file and "   apt-get update   ";
7- Then the happy ending: type "   apt-get install xubuntu-desktop   "
8- Enjoy your brand-new Xubuntu!
