Matt: I reloaded the LAMP server (fresh) - that went well as far as I
can tell. Logged in and sudo update sudo upgrade sudo apt-get install
ubuntu-desktop. It's going through it's ubuntu-desktop setups now. As it
stands now I will go through unbuntu-desktop after installation and
uninstall a good portion of unused/unwanted stuff (games, openoffice, etc).

However, this got me to thinking (danger, danger Will Robinson) as to
whether I really need the full ubuntu-desktop for a gui interface, or if
perhaps I could have loaded something less. Does anyone know how to find
the differences in the meta packages ubuntu-desktop ubuntu-minimal
ubuntu-standard? And/or if I could/should have instead simply installed
ubuntu-minimal or ubuntu-standard?
