Ah, I had seen a HOWTO on installing it from the full Ubuntu distro -
I've got a pile of 5.10 CDs still even though I've given loads away
:-)  However, I don't think it is Xubuntu.  Xubuntu uses the Xfce
desktop but this Ubuntulite uses something else.  Possibly ICEWm.  The
last time I looked there was a dedicated Xubuntu site which is why I
am doubtful about it.

I'll do some more digging.  Cheers though :-)
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
