I would like to know whats out there, for a lightweight XFCE distros. I know Porteus and BBQ, what else is there? thanks.
here's a xfce puppy.. I am not a puppy linux user, but some like it. there are sure some more. check the puppy linux website. they come in a lot of different builds based on different distros.

there is Linux Mint Debian with xfce as well. not lightweight-lightweight, but it ran well on older hardware.
zenwalk was pretty light if I remember right.
or just install xfce on top of crunchbang

I would just do a debian netinstall with the DE/WM of your choice. pretty dang thin. use wheezy/backports if you want newer software (I'm using kernel 3.2 and iceweasel 20 alpha on debian + openbox netinstall myself )
OS: Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6 64-bit
WMs: Openbox, Compiz, and DWM
Zenwalk - based off Slackware I believe.
Personally, I would recommend using either some sort of LinuxBBQ Xfce spin or doing
a debian netinstall with the DE/WM of your choice
