In my experience probably the best tool for doing Linux admin is
webmin. Unfortunately it does not come installed as standard under
Ubuntu, But when I install asterisks in a flash it was installed and
the best admin tool I've seen in a long time. You can use it on Ubuntu
but need to install it manually first which is a shame :)
Webmin gives you the ability to configure practically everything
including fstab from the comfort of your web browser.
