I think installing it should be explained at the place, where you got it from. Where is this? I must say, that I don't find any download or much further information for lubuntu.

http://lxde.org/download writes :
Install LXDE and Debian GNU/Linux into your computer
Thanks to Debian GNU/Linux project for making LXDE easily available. However, there is no installer available in Debian Live image yet. Nevertheless, if you want to install it into your computer system, you can use Debian XFCE+LXDE installation CD image available below

I think Lubuntu can't install from live cd. :(

Lubuntu is something (complete) different, that confused me. Debian is not Ubuntu.

Why not getting the official Debian install cd, install it and install lxde afterwards? It is a binary distro, so it should not take that much time.

If you need LXDE alone with the ubuntu install, try out Ubuntu minimal install.If you are new to linux please follow the previous post.
