You could try what I did on Debian:
-- add your user to the "staff" group (so you can install stuff to /usr/local as a normal user)
-- install the "build-essential" package
-- add the "deb-src" repository line to /etc/apt/sources.list and run "sudo apt-get update"
-- install build dependencies (sudo apt-get build-dep xfdesktop4 xfce4-terminal xfprint4 alsa-utils)
-- download the Xfce GUI-installer (for example, to ~/tmp/xfce)
-- run the Xfce GUI-installer (sh ~/tmp/xfce/xfce4-4.3.90.1-installer.bin)

I installed Xubuntu last week on my old thinkpad (390x) by iso/CD. No problems except that clicking on a menu entry does nothing at all. The entry is called "Software Properties" and it was brought to my attention when I first clicked on "Update Manager". Like in order to update I had to configure my system via "Software Properties". Although just now I tried again and it updated 6 packages without error.
