SuSE 9.2 is my suggestion. Easy to set up and comes with every kind of server known to man. The GUI (YaST) is second to none in my opinion.

Slackware uses has several GUIs. However your server setup will just be txt files that need very small changes.

any linux distro can use GUI's. Some distros have global gui settings tools and some not.
