Any suggestions on how I should install/configure Ubuntu server on the following hardware that I'm acquiring tomorrow?

Dual Xeon 2.0 GHz processors
5 x 146 GB SCSI Hot Swap Drives (10 Bays available and maybe filled in the near future)
16 GB RAM
1 Gb NIC

This machine will be used for various game servers (minecraft and the like) for my Son and his group of friends. It will also handle email/chat/ssh/file sharing as well.

I was thinking that maybe something like Proxmox first and then multiple virtual machines under that? I have zero experience with that but it will be fun to experiment.

I am trying to install Gvim via the Ubuntu software center, but I get
a fail message (below).

"Package dependencies cannot be resolved, This error could be caused by required additional software packages being missing or not-installable. Alternatively, there could be a conflict between software packages that are not allowed to be installed at the same time."

Any suggestions

I just bought a laptop with Windows8 is pre-installed. It uses several partitions and First I thought of removing it completely. However, I've paid for it so first let it be (by the way it is completely unusable for somebody who has used UNIX/Linux over the past 25 years).
Now I have shrunk one Windows partition to 250 GB to install Ubuntu on. However, when I start installing the first thing that's asked is a device for the boot loader installation. I give /dev/sda6 (which is the partition I would use for Ubuntu) but it complains that it is used for mount point / (natural) and it want a separate partition for the bootloader code which should be marked as a "Reserved BIOS boot area".
I assume it will need an area for the grub loader in the boot-area but there is of course already the WIndows boot code. As extra information: I install in legacy mode as UEFI is too new for me.
