You might want to check out this post from 2 weeks ago at the 
Ubuntu forum concerning webmin vs ebox:


According to the Ubuntu forum discussion from only a few weeks 
ago, most posters were leaning toward webmin. There's some 
concern that ebox doesn't save your config files in 
traditional places. Apparently ebox saves config files only in 
the ebox directory. At least that's what was reported in the 
Ubuntu forum.

A new version of Webmin has been recently released (1.420) 
Their website states: "The new version of Webmin includes 
Ubuntu 8.04 fixes..."

It might be worth checking out.
