already comes with X. Make sure you don't run X while the system is in
production. Running X during setup doesn't help a bit either though.
Webmin might be a better idea if you don't trust your skills. You can
throw the monitor away and hide the server somewhere so it's not in the
way and the noise doesn't bother you.
FYI, blackbox etc. are not X servers. X is the server, blackbox is a
client. As for the X server, Debian 3.0 does give you the option of
running X 3.3.x, which may be lighter than X 4.x. But then again, you
don't want X.
