Unfortunately we had to drop the Alternate installer after the 12.04
release due to lack of testers available for it. I don't believe that
status has changed any.

Currently we recommend that people use the mini ISO[0] and install
Xubuntu from that, which will download the packages from the internet
(I understand there is an option for what desktop to install).
