This solution worked like a charm, thank!  I am writing this from the
Lubuntu machine now, and it is reasonably fast, despite being only 512 MB.

Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread!  I sort of wish that I had
decided to do the apt-get route, because that would have been just so cool.
 I wanted to go with a fresh install, because I also moved from 12.04 to
12.10.  I think that if I had done the apt-get route, it would have gone
from Ubuntu 12.04 to Lubuntu 12.04.

I normally prefer to stay with LTS distros, but Lubuntu's home page says
that Lubuntu 12.04 is not an LTS, anyway, so I am just going to have to
update every 6 months or so.  I am going to be reinstalling frequently
anyway, because this machine faces the Internet with only a Sonic.net modem
in between.  I had a server that was on the internet for a commercial
website I have, and squatters came onto it and put porn on it.  I am just
lucky it wasn't kiddy porn.  Can you image what would have happened if they
had put kiddie porn on it !  Serious trouble.  So I am not taking any
changes and I am going to blow away the install every 60 days or so.

At any rate, thanks to everyone for this recommendation!  The mini.iso is
