Thanks for 'tasksel' suggestion.
Also you indicated "Please note that it will require some tuning to work
well in a production environment".
Can you kindly mention specific things I need to take care.

Also if possible, please mention right drupal-book/document to follow.
I am planning to use Drupal 6.
