Hello again, NoOP, 

I actually have a Feisty desktop running and installed all the LAMP
packages and using webmin without a problem.

I'm sure there will be comments on the security of running a desktop as
a server but as with you is for test purposes and learning the LAMP
programs working from GUI.

There was a thread on the Ubuntu forums on this but I could not find it
again. It gave all the steps to set this up.
