Oh, now that you mention it, it doesn't appear to be in the repos  
(which I find interesting, but that's beside the point).  I guess I  
just assumed it was there.  What the OP can do is download webmin from  
sourceforge as a .deb package and use dpkg -i to install it.  I would  
stress to the OP that they learn to administer the server without the  
crutch of the GUI.  It helps one better understand how the specific  
service works and it allows one to be able to fix problems in the case  
that a GUI isn't available (webmin included).  I've found in my years  
of being an SA that once you know your way around configuring a  
service, it's much quicker to do it through an ssh session than using  
a GUI.  And, it's usually easier to revert back to a known good state  
if you're a good SA and make backup copies of your config files before  
changing them.  Webmin edits the file in-place.
