Thanks, Kevin. That was what I wanted to know.

Hmm, so I have to install without a desktop environment first, to add 
XFCE after installing F21? Installing GNOME just to finally swap it
for XFCE sounds weird.

This is not an option for me, my internet is not fast enough. In fact,
I can be happy to have at least reasonably useable internet at all
where I live. Thus, the "big Fedora DVD" was quite perfect in my case.
