In this instance that was the problem, it didn't give me an opportunity 
to choose 'X' in the first place.

I would beg to differ :) It is certainly not fundamental to server 
operation, but when the first item you are allowed to select in tasksel 
is "Desktop" I do consider some sort of Windowing System to be pretty 
fundamental - since the desktop systems have to sit on some sort of 
Windows Manager and the Windows Managers have to sit on Xfree or 
something similar.  Unless anyone here knows differently of course.
