    Most distros can be setup as non-gui. All you need to do is unselect any KDE or GNOME or any other windo manager. also deselect xserver and X11. then you shall have a purely command line driven linux box.

    I think he means debian and slackware etc which don't have gui installers at all.

    Umm I would say probably Ubuntu which is based on debian.

    If you're familiar with cfdisk, I'd say Slackware is the easiest.
    Keep in mind though, I've been using and installing Slackware and Slack-based distros for 2 years and I just finished my first Ubuntu install.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Slackware or Ubuntu have pretty easy non-graphical installs. I wouldn't personally recommend Ubuntu, however, since the actual OS it installs doesn't work for me, but the installer is pretty easy.

    I too recommend Slackware. While not being GUI it's installer is certainly not too difficul to get to grips with.

    There is also a good walkthrough on the Slackware website http://www.slackware.com/install/
