I have an installation disc of Ubuntu 12.04 but now I need to install Lubuntu 13.04. What are the steps to be followed?

Can you please state your goal more precisely? Do you want to install Lubuntu 13.04 to a new, independent partition and dual-boot with Ubuntu 12.04? Or upgrade the current Ubuntu 12.04 with Lubuntu 13.04? Or perhaps wipe out Ubuntu and perform a clean install of Lubuntu? Dual boot and wipe out approaches are pretty straightforward, but upgrade in same partition (keeping programs, settings, etc) can be a lot trickier. – MestreLion Jul 27 '13 at 0:32

You can either install Ubuntu from the disk you have and then install the lubuntu-desktop meta-package.

Or just grab and install from a Lubuntu CD. The bandwidth required will be similar.
