I don't know much about Ubuntu. I would try buying the book "Ubuntu for Dummies". I am not saying your a dummy, but I have "Knoppix for dummies" and it's helped me greatly. Just a suggestion.... until someone smarter than me comes and tells you differently.

If you Want an Easy to follow Guide Try LinuxLoader


Although Its NOT ubuntu but it may help, or you could use Mandriva

Well I do know one thing and that is if you are running any kind of server from a desktop linux machine fedora core is a much better idea.

When you install it give you far more options for running as a server.

How do you figure that Fugazi? as XAMPP is a predefined set of packages that are rolled into one simple install. Fedora is a bit too cumbersome for a newbie and if you are planning on running a server box a lightweight standard Ubuntu install is pretty handy. It also makes configuration a lot easier for people that are new to Linux with Synaptic or apt-get. I was running FC4 before Dapper came out and since dropped it and now use Dapper to run ISPConfig and a heap of other pen testing and exploit testing apps. Ubuntu with Fluxbox to cut down on rescources will also run happily and quickly on older systems as well.
Cheers, Lucent.

Point taken lucent but if you are a more advanced Linux user I still think that FC5 is a better idea than Ubuntu.

So in this case for a simple least complex scenario for a webserver Ubuntu would be the best pick.
