I'll have to agree 100% with Robert on this one - I discovered Webmin a 
couple of years ago in use on a client's machine and started using it 
myself on my own machines - and the client in question has such levels 
of paranoia about security that he makes MI5 look like cowboys......

Since starting using it I reckon it takes me 50% less time to set up a 
machine once I've got Webmin up and running - and you don't need to have 
a web server running - Webmin can run its own mini HTTP server.

There's also Usermin - I'll leave you to guess what that's for! :-)
