installing a GUI on Ubuntu server


I am not sure if this is the correct place to start, but here goís:
I am a newbie to linux and am exploring Ubuntuís 8.10 server . My question is how one can install a K or J desktop on this software. It is easier for me to use a GUI than command line.
Thanks for your help

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
This should do it
