for XBMC live I'd suggest you either install the live distro directly with the integrated textmode installer or you follow the XBMCbuntu guide that's sticky on top of this forum. I tried both ways and ended up with more or less the same basic ubuntu installation with XBMC on top. the only benefits of the XBMCbuntu guide are that you are more flexibel with the partitioning and installation of the base system and that it is easier (for me) to cleanly install new graphics drivers from nvidia which screwed up my previous XBMC live system.
when you want an easy installation with a fully fledged ubuntu and graphical desktop, go for this excellent guide here; when you just want a basic HTPC with set-top style XBMC accessibility, go directly for the live system or try XBMCbuntu.
