There is a "command line only" install option on the alternate CD. 
Install that, then run:

sudo apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-goodies gdm

Then any other packages you need.  That will give you a really light 
weight "xubuntu" so to speak.  You'll want to use the wired connection 
initially then switch to wireless.

For more info into my expeditions into lightweight Xfce4 based Ubuntu see
