I downloaded the Xubuntu 9.04 alternate-i386.iso using the reference at 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/JauntyJackalope/Final#To%20Get%20Xubuntu%209.04 .

I burned the iso to a cd-r using Brasero, and then ran "Check disk for
defects" from the main menu of the cd. On my PIII, 866MHz cpu with
512MB ram, I have to turn off the computer and turn it back on to run
the installation, which is normal for that computer. 

I then ran the installation with no issues.
