How about putting the monitor back in, setting the initial runlevel (using
/etc/inittab) to 3. This is what I have done (although I've never had the
same problem as you) and it's quite happily sitting on my left, being
controlled by SSH, with a network kable and a pair of speakers playing my

Subject: Trying to boot Core 4 without a Monitor Attached
I installed FC4 with KDE and used it as a desktop for a bit and now I
want to remove the monitor, mouse, and keyboard and use it as a server
for a short time while as I set up another system.
However, when I remove the monitor cable, the system does not boot --
it repeatable tries to access the CD every few seconds. It boots with
the mouse and keyboard removed, and even if I power off the monitor.
Removing the monitor cable seems to cause the problem.
I would like to use the system as a desktop again later so I prefer not
to uninstall the KDE desktop.
Any ideas on what I can do to free up my monitor?
