Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This is a detailed tutorial about the steps to set up a Ubuntu based server (Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger) to act as file- and print server for Windows workstations in small workgroups. This howto uses the tdb backend for Samba to store passwords and account information. This is suitable for workgroups for up to 250 users and is easier to setup than an LDAP backend."

Graphical tools are easier to use, so what? They become a serious pain when you know what you are doing and, more often than not, get in the way of doing more advanced stuff.

Servers are not desktops, what matters is being efficient and productive not easying things up for aunt Tillie...
