[Please notify your IT Administrator of this Error!] Lubuntu as a server

Lubuntu would never 'by default' ever get into the 'server' area, as there
is a server release. But, you, and others who do require some GUI to 'help'
1. Install ubuntu-minimal 12.04 LTS (this will give you basically a system
that will boot, ready to have other things installed upon it).
2. Install ubuntu-server 12.04 LTS (this will give you tasksel and the
ability to easily install all the 'server' stuff you may need, such as
LAMP, SSH, firewall etc).
Installing ubuntu-server will also give, via tasksel, the ability to
install lubuntu-desktop. But, as your request for a 'more' server type area
with GUI, I'd suggest that you Install lubuntu-core (This will give you the
basic lubuntu without all the games etc).
To get a better idea of the differences between 'desktop' and 'core', head
over to minimal install where you can view what is actually on the two
options that are available.
Please feel more than free to give it a try and let us know how you get on.
