I think one server guide is enough: the idea is for it to be completely
desktop indepedent, so we can use the same guide (in the generic folder) for
both ubuntu and kubuntu.
That is a great idea. Is the guide geared towards ubuntu-server or those that take whatever flavor of ubuntu (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu) and run it as a server. If it is towards the later, then it can't really be too desktop agnostic. From talking w/ Riddell what we would like is some form of guide for those that want to Kubuntu as a server.
If we focus on ubuntu-server then we shouldn't have gui tools involved. The disk doesn't install a desktop by default and the easiest way to install one is either apt-get install kubuntu-desktop or ubuntu-desktop and then weed out the programs you don't need. Note I didn't say best way, but it is the easiest and I've talked w/ people on #kubuntu who have done so.
