When you boot up the text-mode install cd, there's an option to "install a server." This is the install you're looking for. It doesn't install server packages, nor a GUI, just the system core and utilities. The kernel is the same as the desktop kernel.

I recently installed Xubuntu (which is a light weight ubuntu distro using xfce) on my PII-366 laptop. I've been really really pleased. It's quick even on such a very old machine, and good apps are included without much bloat. It can be installed by doing a minimal/server install and then "apt-get xubuntu-desktop" or from a xubuntu disc.
