So could someone please give me step by step instructions on how to do this? Thanks.
sudo apt-get install lxde
sudo apt-get install kdebase
sudo apt-get install openbox
sudo apt-get install xfce4
Mixing and matching *buntus is possible and often encouraged by the community. If you choose Ubuntu, you are not stuck with Ubuntu. If you choose Kubuntu, you are not stuck with Kubuntu. You can use Gnome-native applications in KDE and vice versa. You can use Gnome- and KDE-native applications in Xfce. You can install education-related programs in any desktop environment. You can install kubuntu-desktop on top of Ubuntu and choose which one you want to log into at the login screen. All four versions of Ubuntu (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu) share the same software repositories and available applications. You are not locked into using one version just because it is the first version you installed. From now on, I'll be referring to all or any of the above versions as simply Ubuntu.

I actually don't have it installed yet.

What I WILL say is that you won't really experience XFCE until you use a distro that is tweaked for it.
