OS X Server services on OS X client?
I recently bought an old Mac mini on eBay with OS X 10.6 client. I am actually planning to use it as a server. I have three options:
However, I would really like to keep OS X on the machine and add what I need to make it a better server. (Most things that run on Linux can be run on OS X, and several are even included in the client version--Apache, for example.) Does anyone have tips on this?
Off the top of my head, the only two things I would like that aren't included are something like iCal Server (especially the Web interface of iCal Server 2 if something like that exists) and iChat server (is this just an XMPP server?). Mail would also be nice, but if nothing else, I'm sure I can get the tools I use on Linux to run on OS X.
I know I can do Web and file serving already, as well as some of the other features OS X server supports (although perhaps not as elegantly), like wiki serving. I'm also curious what the "mobile access server" is or if there exists anything similar for OS X client. (I'm also considering running Ubuntu in a virtual machine and keeping OS X for...I'm not exactly sure what, other than to be a host OS. But, again, I'd like to stick with OS X as much as I can, especially since I know even the client version includes some things I like.)
If anyone has tips, that would be great. Thanks!

You can do CalDAV and CardDAV by following this: http://www.ronregev.com/misc/pim_server_tutorial/
Note that the process has changed because the repositories have both protocols bundled together now so it should be one big setup instead of two. The author hasn't released an updated version yet, although he said he would (see comments on bottom)
