I know this seems odd but hear me out:
I have just upgraded.
From the leftover parts, I have built a second system: A (very viable) Celeron 366 on an AbitBE6 mobo and a few old components (2d video card, old desktop case, etc...). And I have networked the old and new systems (from parts donated by a friend). But I do not have a monitor for it.
I want to make it into a kind of mp3 server; hooked to my stereo, and remote controled over the network. But I can't get windows to start up on it unless there is a monitor attached.
I am trying to avoid spending any more money.
Is it possible to configure win98 to startup with no monitor display attached to it?
Thanks ahead for any insight,
(ps. I know about the switches they make, but I am trying to avoid that option)

Simply hook the monitor to it and start windows. Then unhook the monitor. It will do no harm; I've done it hundreds of times with nary a glitch.
