Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more."

"Different distros come differing administration tools. I use openSUSE* which includes YaST.

Other distros may have other GUI tools. Fedora last I looked has next to none.

And there's also webmin as UK suggested.

* Note that I don't use openSUSE specifically because of YaST as I'm fairly comfortable with the command line for most of my admin needs. I use it mainly for its first class support for KDE (plus I prefer RPM based systems)."
