In Debian based systems, like Ubuntu, groups are handled through two mechanisms:
1. meta-packages. These look like regular old packages. For
instance, to install development tools, the command to install would
apt-get install build-essential
To install the Xfce desktop, you would install the "xfce4" package, and so on.
2. tasksel. This is a graphical menu that will allow you to select
groups of packages, such as specific server, desktops, etc.
