I can remotely manage a WinNT server using VNC and would like to disable the mouse and keyboard. While I can stop these devices in the Devices applet, I would rather use connectors that make the BIOS and OS think a mouse and keyboard are connected. I am sure someone has thought of this adaptation, like for repeating slide shows on a kiosk setup. I would prefer to find a shop that carries these little "null" devices or what electronis I would need to build it myself. Gotta be a way...

You really don't need any *devices* you should be able to setup the mainboards bios to "not stop on any errors" however on initial boot you may want the mouse and keyboard hooked up so you can make the necassary adjustment to NT server for VCN use than disconnect the mouse and keyboard when done. This is the way I have done it in the past.
