I read this as you installed Ubuntu twice using a CD and got only a commandline.
What do you want to 'uninstall' ? Ubuntu? Just write over it.
If you want back to the operating system you had there before you
installed Ubuntu twice, that's not possible.

There isn't a reason to run the server edition for most people.
That being said, the vast majority of the software is identical
between the server and desktop versions. Either will work as a
desktop or a server.

I can't make that sentence make sense to me.
If you are asking can you get virtualization working on a regular
Ubuntu desktop with a graphical interface, then the answer is yes.
If you are asking can you burn a CD from the server edition then the
answer is yes.
If you are asking can I install the regular Ubuntu in a virtual
machine then that answer is yes too.
If you have installed the server version and wish you had a graphical
interface like the regular desktop version, then just type 'sudo
aptitude install ubuntu-desktop' and it will install the extra stuff.

Allen, I think we need some more background here.
What are you trying to do exactly? And what have you done so far?
Then we can give a better answer.
