First of all I don't have much knowledge about linux stuff.
So, I am planning to buy a netbook this week and was thinking of installing
ubuntu 12.04 on it.
Is there any version of ubuntu 12.04 available to download which asks user to which package/applications the user wants to install or not so that I can get a minimal distribution for my system.
I was thinking of using
LXDE as my default desktop environment. So, the ubuntu CD let me choose whether or not I want to install Gnome/unity on my current system and at a latter stage when my installation is complete I can manually install
Also is this the correct way to install other desktop environments or one should first do a complete install of ubuntu and than remove and install a DE of his choice.So, if this is not the correct way than can you please point me to the correct way to achieve the other option I mentioned.
Please give UBUNTU specific anwers because I know I can get the above configuration using
