I'm planning to by a second machine to use with my existing Linux
workstation. It will simply be an engine for testing pvm stuff, and so
won't be used as a workstation itself. Once Linux is installed and
running, does a Linux box need a video card and keyboard to function
(I've got an old terminal lying around I'd like to use as its console)?
The card, keyboard and monitor together will end up costing more than
the box itself. I'd rather spend the money on more memory/faster
