Thanks for the links.  I had already looked at Webmin, but after doing more 
research on it, ppl seemed to think it could be a security leak.

I had never heard of Emu / NetDirector though, and after looking around at 
the site and the demos, I must say I am extremely impressed by it.  I also 
like the fact that it is OS Java based.  My only concern, however, is that I 
can't seem to find any community support for it.  Does that mean there is no 
install base?  Sourceforge mailing lists have no activity and no one on 
them, as do the SourceForge forums.  Do you know if there are other forums 
or mailing lists that are used by the community for this?
