Goodo! One last little question (well, for now, prolly more to come at a later date ^^ ). Is there a Xubuntu forum, or XFCE forum on the ubuntu forums (like Kubuntus)?
No, but the XFCE forum is pretty good. Their level of talk is a bit higher than "beginner" though, so watch for that....
EDIT: When are you planning to do the install?

Thanks Art. I guess some time this week, or at the weekend. Ill have a bit of a read first. The plain ubuntu download is tiny, already got it on a cd ready to go.
In order to keep your system light, install these:
Video: VLC + MPlayer
Audio: Alsaplayer, Audacious, Consonance or Exaile
Disc Burning: Graveman
Login manager: SLiM
Office: AbiWord and Gnumeric-GTK
Feed reader: Liferea
Picture Viewer: Mirage
Graphics Editor: GIMP and Inkscape
Oh, and install EmelFM2 and add the Medibuntu repository ( http://medibuntu.org/ ) to install libdvdcss2 and w32codecs.
Even though you have 4GB of RAM, using a GNOME-free desktoop will make your computer fly.

Tel, im not to worried about it being that super light I have 4gb of ram, i just want to get rid of the pauses on Xubuntu, and i like having nice fresh minimal self chosen installs
L815, im thinking they are meaning the very base Ubuntu install. As in the one that doesnt even install a desktop let alone any apps.
Can anyone tell me how to get a minimal ubuntu install, to install xfce onto? Is it Ubuntu server?
