I want to install LAMP stack on Ubuntu desktop version 10.x. Do I have to reinstall the whole thing via the server version or apt-get install?

No. Just open a Terminal and type the following:

sudo tasksel install lamp-server

If you want to bring up the whole menu for the application groups:
sudo tasksel

You can use the Ubuntu help these times (if you get stuck):
