Ah! well the standard practice for server is that it'll be console only 
(no GUI). This is done when you install deb as its asks what type of 
installation you want : Desktop, server or custom.
What that does is to preselect packages to install. Like Gnome desktop 
with open office if you select Desktop and Apache and PostgreSql if you 
select Server.
There's no fine tuning needed as it works as a server out of the box.All

you have to do is to install the service that you need like Apache, 
MySQL, Samba Server etc. and install only the stuff you need.

Like I said, you don't need any fine tuning by default unless you're 
planning to have an unusual setup.
