I will go against the grain and say "Yes" to the AV software. Although your
Ubuntu box might not be succeptible to viruses, if you're  receiving &
sending data (either through FTP, Mail, or other means) then you will be
able to spot anything nasty before you pass it on. On several occasions I've
spotted Email attachments with Windows viruses and then informed the sender
that they had problems.

Personally I've used both F-prot & ClamAV.
