I'm sorry but I'm an absolute beginner and have difficulty typing.
I have an HP Proliant DL36 and friend has installed a GUI on it for me. For the time-being I will run it with direct console access (Mouse and keyboard interface), only connecting to the internet to download what I need to install.
Once it's up and running I'll have to access it through a web portal.
On to my question: Does anyone know of a tutorial, to set up a server and services using an Ubuntu GUI interface?
To clarify, I want to replicate a Windows Server look-and-feel to see what services have stopped, or what problems there are. I'm looking to replicate that as near as possible with Ubuntu.
