There are lots of applications and utilities which are X based that are
nice to have on servers, if you're not familiar with the console, or
just lazy.

RedHat, for example, comes with some utilities.  Most major applications
have a configuration utility.

Granted, there are also nice web-based configuration applications, which
may be a better choice than a GUI...
